WAMP is a regional organization which works with more than 200 museums in West Africa. One of its missions is to provide technical assistance to museums. With its full-time staff at a bare minimum, it is often difficult for WAMP to support technically all of the museums which request assistance.

Therefore, because of its bare-bones operation budget and the high cost of  either part-time or full-time highly qualified staff, WAMP implemented an internship program a number of years ago to enable students with backgrounds in art, anthropology, sociology, computer technology, and other fields related to cultural development to work with WAMP for periods from three to six months.

This programme is open to African students and those from other countries around the world as well. Priority will be given to students who have at least a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree and who are writing a research thesis/dissertation on museums or subjects related to African art, cultural heritage, or African societies. At the end of their internship, the interns will submit a copy of their thesis to be included in WAMP’s documentation centre. As WAMP is unable to provide scholarships or grants for interns at the present time, students should have funding lined up before enrolling in the programme.

Depending on the financing of this programme, small grants may be provided to African students.
