The Institute for Public History offers the following paid internship opportunities to undergraduate and graduate students. Students may apply from any major, department, or field. Applications and instructions are available on the Institute's website here. Applications must be received by 5 p.m. on Friday, February 3, 2017. Successful applicants will be notified by email by the end of March or early April.

The applications committee will match the best qualified students with the available internship opportunities. Students can indicate three preferences, but may be considered for other possibilities as well. Interns are expected to devote approximately 300 hours over a ten-week summer period, unless otherwise indicated. Some flexibility exists and can be worked out with internship supervisors.

Unless specified in terms of specific internships, undergraduates will be paid $2,175.00 for the summer; graduate students will be paid $3,750.00. The university will deduct FICA benefits from these wages.
