The Fredericton Region Museum has a very limited number of summer student opportunities each year. As funding is dependent upon grants (Young Canada Works, SEED/PEP and Canada Summer Jobs), interested students should research the youth employment programs and ensure that they qualify and are registered with the program candidate banks. SEED/PEP applications have an early deadline so please submit your application on time! Positions will be posted and interviews will be scheduled once funding commitments are received. Please send your resume and covering letter to the office addressed to the Executive Director.
