Internships, Scholarships and Voluntering

Summer Youth Internships
The Pratt Museum regrets to announce that its high school intern program will not continue as
planned this year. These programs were funded through a partnership with the National Park
Service. As you may know, recent federal cuts have impacted funding for federal agencies across
the board. The National Park Service has been forced to make numerous cuts in their operations
and programming, including the funding for youth programs through partnerships like ours.

Because the young people involved in this program had a large role in the quality of experience
that each of our summer visitors has here at the Museum, we are working on other ways to offer
this valuable work experience for high school students. We will consider other possible funding
sources for the future, in the event that this situation continues beyond this year.

The Pratt Museum has an ongoing interest in providing internship experience to college students. Contact us to discuss the availability of internships.

Gale Parsons Memorial Scholarship april
The Gale Parsons Memorial Scholarship was established in 2008 by Gale’s friends and family as a way to honor her memory and continue her legacy.  Gale was dedicated to nature, cultural understanding and arts education.  Gale played a major role in shaping the Pratt Museum’s exhibits and educational programs. She worked to strengthen the Museum’s relationships with Native villages and tribes.  She also helped establish Tamamta Katurlluta, the biennial Gathering of Native Tradition.

Eligibility Requirements & Award Amount: An annual Scholarship of $500 will be awarded each year, in the summer, to a deserving Native student in the region who wishes to pursue formal education in cultural studies or archaeology. Area High School and College students are encouraged to apply. Payment will be made upon receipt of the final student essay.  Download 2013 Application Form (pending).
