List of 2013 Summer Internships
The Institute for Public History offers the following opportunities to advanced undergraduate and graduate students. Students may apply from any field, and must do so by filling out a formal application. Application materials can be found on the Institute's website here. Final applications must be received on Monday, February 4, 2013 by 12:00 noon. Decisions should be announced by the end of March or early April.
The committee will match the best qualified students with these 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.
