Internships at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science offer opportunities to gain hands-on experience in scientific research, collections, digital research, and fossil preparation. These programs are valuable stepping stones toward careers in professional fields. Internships at the Museum are guided by DMNS staff who serve as mentors.
We understand the value of internships in providing valuable learning experiences and preparing individuals for their professional journey. However, at this time, we do not have any open internship opportunities to offer. We often have multiple internship positions available over the year, so be sure to stay connected to DMNS and check this page for future internship opportunities.
Internships for School Credit
In addition to our stipend internships, the Science Division offers internships for school credit. Please apply at least two months before your anticipated start date to allow time for application review. Decisions about which qualified applicants receive an internship are made by the Science Team staff.
- Applicants must be at least an undergraduate and have completed at least two semesters by the start of the internship.
- Stipends are not provided by the Denver Museum of Nature & Science for School Credit Internships. However, some colleges may provide funding to support these internships.
- If you have applied for a stipend internship and are hoping to receive credit from your school if selected, you do not need to fill out this form.
