Application Procedure

How do interns apply?

Anyone interested in becoming an intern at the Oklahoma Museum of History will go through an application process. This process is designed to evaluate the intern and his/her skills, needs, and commitment level, as well as give the intern the opportunity to see where he/she could operate best within the museum.


Upon review of the application materials (listed below), a representative from the Oklahoma Museum of History will contact the student and advisor to schedule a required student interview. The interview is a two-way communication process for the student and staff. It provides an opportunity for both parties to assess each other. The interview will determine if the candidate is properly qualified for the task under consideration. When the internship term is agreed upon the student must sign the Internship Memorandum of Understanding.

Background Checks

In order to ensure a safe environment, all interns will be required to submit to a criminal history background check prior to acceptance as an intern. Individuals who refuse to comply with this request will not be accepted as interns.
