The goal of the Getty Marrow Undergraduate Internship program is to expose college students from backgrounds that have been underrepresented in the arts to careers in museums and visual arts organizations. The program offers paid internships in core areas of museum work such as curatorship, conservation, education, publications, and public programming. No prior work experience or educational background in the arts is required.

Since 1993, the Getty Foundation has dedicated upwards of $14 million to support over 3,500 internships at 175 local arts institutions, including Getty. The program has also inspired a public-private partnership between Getty and the LA County Department of Arts and Culture, which followed the Foundation’s lead in 2000 by starting a parallel program of undergraduate internships focused on the performing and literary arts. Together, this alliance forms the largest paid arts internship program in the country. Originally titled the Multicultural Undergraduate Internship program, the program was renamed in 2018 to honor its founder and long-time Getty Foundation director Deborah Marrow. Learn more at
