Overview Internships at the Camron-Stanford House provide students an opportunity to gain practical experience in a small history museum setting. In this learning role, interns will have an opportunity to actively learn about collections care and management, participate in curatorial projects, learn about caring for a historic building, all while developing a better understanding and appreciation for the work of small, local historic house museums.
Funding Thanks to a generous donation from Joy Tahan-Ruddell, the Handumy J. Tahan internship Fund will support funding for one student intern per academic term (Fall and Spring).
Funded internships help lay a path towards equity in the museum industry. We are grateful for this contribution, which allows Camron-Stanford House the ability to offer paid internships for emerging professionals in the fields of history, museum studies, and historic preservation.
The Handumy J. Tahan Internship Fund was established by the generosity of Joy Tahan Ruddell, a long-time supporter and former board member of Camron-Stanford House, committed to fostering the talents of future generations of museum professionals in the Bay Area. The Fund is named in honor of Ruddell’s mother, who wholeheartedly supported her museum career and inspired her to give back to others who equally deserve that support. Her generosity, strength, and perseverance is an inspiration to Ruddell everyday.
Interested? We accept applications for internships year-round. Interns are placed based on available projects, applicants’ goals, and staff availability to support interns. We require at minimum a 3 month (or one academic term) commitment with at least five hours per week.
