Applicants must either be currently enrolled in a program leading to
a diploma or degree in a conservation or relevant museum collections
care field, have completed appropriate studies within the past three
years, or are "Pre-Program" applicants pursuing a graduate
conservation program, but need to accrue the needed 800-1200 hours
of experience prior to applying--in which case this is a great place
to accumulate some of those 100's requisite hours.  Many of our
previous interns have gone on to have wonderful successes in this
highly competitive field.
