Internship Opportunities

The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum offers unpaid internships for both undergraduate and graduate students in a variety of areas, including Audio/Visual, Museum Collections and Exhibits, Textual Archives and Records Digitization, and Student Lecture Series Research. Our internships offer students a unique opportunity to gain valuable work experience while cultivating a better understanding of the Presidency, American history, and important issues of public policy.
