Getty Marrow Internship Program Impact Report


Los Angeles County is one of the most diverse places in the country, yet this diversity is often not mirrored in the professional staff of its museums and visual arts organizations. For nearly 30 years, the Getty Foundation has been addressing this problem by funding paid summer internships for college students from underrepresented groups through the Getty Marrow Undergraduate Internship program. This report shares data on the impact of the internship program from alumni surveys, grant application demographics, and recent alumni interviews, as well as insights for arts organizations and other funders who are supporting greater diversity, equity, and inclusion in the nation’s museums and cultural institutions.
