    Windgate Museum-01

    The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design (CCCD) administers the Windgate Museum Internship program which provides $5,000 internships to four selected undergraduate or graduate students to work under the direction of curators or directors in decorative arts or contemporary craft collections, exhibitions and/or programs. The goal of these internships is to support and expand the number of future curators with education and interest in contemporary studio craft.

    The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design is now accepting applications from museums, galleries, foundations, and non-profits with craft collections and curatorial staff requiring intern assistance. Four institutions will be selected to receive $5,000 to hire an intern for a craft related project.
