A number of opportunities for internships are available to history majors and minors at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Graduate Internships

The History Department supports graduate students to the fullest extent possible through a combination of merit-based School of Liberal Arts tuition scholarships, community partner- and campus-funded paid internships, campus-funded Community Engagement Associates, and faculty research grants.

Academic-year internships for graduate students provide a stipend (currently $10,000 for a 10-month, 20-hour a week appointment, August 1-May 31), tuition benefits that cover a portion of tuition, and health insurance (if needed).

In recent years, the Public History program has also been able to arrange for a small number of assistantships and internships during the summer months. Because the specifics of financial awards can vary from year to year and the costs of tuition vary significantly based on your state of permanent residence, we encourage you to contact the Director of Public History for information about award amounts before applying.
