The Gund


Associates Program

Information About the Event


All Kenyon students are welcome to apply. We release information about the annual application and interview process in the early fall.*

*Due to the popularity of the Gund Associates program, we are only accepting new hires in the Visitor Services group (host) this fall... Please check back in Spring 2024 for more information. In the meantime, you can explore other programs and opportunities to get involved with The Gund on our events page.

The Gund Associates program is a unique opportunity to explore emerging museum practices through high-impact, semi-professional learning experiences. Students hired as Gund Associates are initiated to varying aspects of museum work, including curatorial research and planning, collection maintenance, public program design, digital storytelling, and educational outreach.

As a Gund Associate, you’ll be encouraged to challenge your assumptions about the museum industry, develop your professional intuition, and forge valuable connections with mentors in the field. And you’ll be part of a Kenyon student community connected by a love for visual art and curiosity for museums as places of self-discovery and meaningful dialogue. Open to all students—whether you’re considering a career in the museum industry or interested in integrating art into your academic journey—this program is a great way to connect with peers you may not otherwise meet during your time at Kenyon.

The Gund is an internationally-recognized academic museum with a growing collection; we are able to pivot programming quickly to remain relevant to current discourse and evolve with the latest standards in the industry. Gund Associates go on to secure competitive internships at museums and galleries across the country.
