The Internship Program at Carnegie Science Center is open to highly motivated college students, recent graduates, or early career professionals seeking specific learning opportunities provided by the Science Center. Internships are not available to any student eligible for our Teen Program. Each intern will be provided with the opportunity to be creative, apply classroom studies in a practical application, and to develop personally and professionally. In return, Carnegie Science Center will receive valuable assistance that contributes significantly to the Science Center’s goals.
A minimum requirement of 120 hours is needed to complete an internship. All internships are unpaid. Upon acceptance into the program, all interns are required to provide and pay for background checks and clearances. Interns who have lived in Pennsylvania for at least 10 years must have their Child Abuse History Clearance (Act 33) and Criminal Record Check Clearance (Act 34). Interns who have lived in Pennsylvania for less than 10 years must have their Child Abuse History Clearance (Act 33) and Criminal Record Check Clearance (Act 34) plus an FBI Fingerprint Clearance (Act 114).
