Dr. Robert Ritzenthaler Memorial Research Internship in Anthropology

Anthropology graduate students who are currently enrolled in (or recently completed the requirements for) the Museum Studies Graduate Certificate Program at UWM are eligible to apply for this $1,500 scholarship, which provides financial support so that the student can complete an internship at the Milwaukee Public Museum during the Spring 2024 semester.

The internship depends on project and supervisor availability and may require previous experience and/or classes. The intern will be required to commit at least 150 hours of internship work during the semester. The student may apply for credit for the internship, if desirable. Applications are typically accepted in November/December for a spring internship.
