Department of Art | Spring ’16 Internships at MoMA, NYC
Is there a specific format for letters of recommendation that my recommender should follow?
No. We do not have a required recommendation form. However, if your recommender has professional stationary, the letter should be written or typed on letterhead. Letters should state the relation between the candidate (you) and the recommender, who may be your professor, advisor, employer, former employer, or internship coordinator. The letter should explain how long the recommender has known you and why they believe you are you qualified for an internship at MoMA; the letter should describe your strengths, talents, and level of experience, as the recommender sees them. We are looking for the demonstration of responsibility, intelligence, certain skills, and maturity. The recommender should be honest and help us assess whether candidates will be a good fit for, and get something out of, an internship at MoMA.

May I participate in more than one internship at MoMA?
One may only participate in one seasonal internship. However, former seasonal interns may apply for the 12-Month Internship Program.
Internships for high school students are also available
Can I do an internship at MoMA during alternate dates, for example during winter break in January?
No. The Internship Program only hires interns for set terms – for our Fall, Spring, Summer, and Twelve-Month Internships. We can only accommodate interns who are able to work during our program times.
