The Trust supports internships in partnership with leading museums or historical societies for recent Masters or PhD graduates. These internships are arranged by the Trust and are carefully organized to match a deserving student with a particular focus of interest to an institution that can provide experience and instruction in that area.
This new endeavor of the Decorative Arts Trust was started to provide post graduates with meaningful employment in these difficult economic times, which are particularly difficult for young people entering the workforce. It has proven to be very successful for the graduate as well as for the institution.
