Conservation Internships

MOA’s Conservation department accepts applications for Conservation Interns for two annual internship periods: summer (May – August) and fall (September – December). Internships are open to students who are enrolled in a conservation training program and who require an internship placement as part of their graduating requirements.

Indigenous Internship Program

The Indigenous Internship Program provides training opportunities for Indigenous people working in museums or Indigenous people who would like to do this kind of work. There will be two annual calls for applicants: Spring and Fall. Placements are 10 weeks, 35 hours per week but may be adjusted to part-time, over a longer duration in order to meet family or community needs.
