ARCS is committed to advocating for paid internships in an industry that remains inaccessible to many. We understand that internships are often necessary to begin a career in museums and we feel strongly that that work should be paid. Starting in Fall 2021, ARCS awarded a $1,000 stipend plus an annual membership to two applicants pursuing internships in registration and/or collections management. The goal of the stipend program is to alleviate some of the financial burden that students often have to bear in order to begin their careers in this field.
