Humanities Fellowship

Over the past several years, the BYU College of Humanities has generously funded paid curatorial fellowships at the Museum of Art. These fellowships allow outstanding Humanities students to become immersed in the cross-disciplinary scholarship of curatorial practice. Students work closely with curators in developing exhibitions and performing in-depth research and writing.

Fellowship candidates may come from any of the Humanities programs, including:

  • American Studies
  • Art History and Curatorial Studies
  • Classical Studies
  • Comparative Literature
  • English
  • Interdisciplinary Humanities
  • Languages
  • Philosophy


Fellowships are 15 hours/week for the duration of a semester, approximately 15 weeks. Hourly wages allow compensation at between $8-$9/hr.

Interested candidates should fill out a Humanities Fellowship application form: Humanities Fellowship Application Form

Deadlines for Internship Application submissions:

  • Spring / Summer and Fall semesters: March 17th
