The Museum Teaching Fellowship Program (Paid)

Museum Teaching Fellows will be employed by the museum and will receive hands-on training to lead gallery tours for school-aged audiences and adult visitors. Fellows will also be introduced to various roles within the Museum and encouraged to become involved in projects that match their skills and interests. Our goals for this program are to professionalize students and provide them with career development training to enter and grow in museum professions and/or patronage.

The Goodrich Fellowship (Paid)

The Goodrich Fellowship is a year-long, part-time position. The Intern will rotate between the four major departments within the Museum (Registration, Curatorial, Development, Education) and will work closely with staff throughout the Museum. They will be given considerable responsibility during their tenure, allowing them the opportunity to gain an in-depth perspective on museum work, from programming to exhibitions and beyond.

UAB/BMA Curatorial Fellowship (Paid)

UAB/BMA Fellows are graduate students in the Art History department at the University of Alabama, Birmingham, who have already developed an area of concentration within their studies. The Fellowship gives students the opportunity to spend one year working in the Curatorial department at the Museum.
