Peggy Guggenheim’s career belongs to the history of 20th century art. She believed it was her duty to protect the art of her own time and dedicated half of her life to this mission as well as to the creation of the museum that carries her name. The Internship provides students with financial assistance to travel to Venice, Italy, to work with the Peggy Guggenheim Collection at the Solomon R Guggenheim Foundation for two months in June/July 2019.


The faculty/department/school will pay the Internship enrolment fees directly to the Foundation, and funding to contribute to the airfare will be deposited into the successful candidate’s bank account as a bursary.


The Internship is available to undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Melbourne. They can be citizens of Australia or of any other country (with the exception of Italy). To meet the eligibility requirements, students must:

  • hold candidature for an undergraduate or postgraduate qualification in art, art history, or a related area at the University of Melbourne and have maintained satisfactory progress since commencement;
  • be enrolled full or part-time; and
  • be fluent in English and spoken Italian.


The Internship is to be held by the successful candidate during June/July 2019.
Within three months of returning from the Internship, the Intern must:

  • Deliver a faculty/departmental/school seminar on the topic of their Internship experience; and
  • Forward a detailed report on their Internship to the Palladio Trust Committee via the Executive Officer.


Applicants will be advised of the outcome via email within 4 weeks after the closing date.
