The Aerospace Heritage Foundation of Utah, with support from the Utah Space Grant Consortium, is pleased to offer a $1,500 scholarship to students enrolled at a university, college or tech school studying a field related to museum work (Education, History, Sociology, etc.) or aviation. Funds will be paid directly to the student’s academic account as a scholarship.
Selectees will be expected to contribute 200 hours at the Hill Aerospace Museum, to be completed between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM, Monday through Saturday, during the Spring (Jan-May), Summer (May-Aug) or Fall (Aug-Dec) semesters. Internships may be extended past a single semester if additional time is needed to complete the required hours. Specific schedules will be determined and approved by museum staff in collaboration with selectees. All work will be done under the direct supervision and guidance of museum staff. College credit may also be available but is subject to approval by the selectee’s educational institution. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year until all scholarships have been awarded.
Opportunities include work in museum curation, museum education, and aircraft restoration.
To apply, fill out and submit the form. Within one week of submission, you should receive an email with instructions for submitting an application package, which includes a cover letter, a résumé, and transcripts.
