The Institute for Public History offers paid internship opportunities to undergraduates, May graduates, and graduate students at the University of Virginia. Students may apply from any major, department, or field. Applications, instructions, and a list of summer 2022 internships will be posted on the Institute's website here. New internships will continue to be added up until the application deadline.

APPLICATIONS FOR SUMMER 2022 ARE DUE FRIDAY FEBRUARY 18 by 11:59 p.m. Submit one email with all required materials to Lisa Goff at

The applications committee will match the best qualified students with the available internship opportunities. Students can indicate three preferences, but will be considered for other possibilities as well unless they indicate otherwise. Interns are expected to devote approximately 300 hours over a roughly ten-week summer period; work schedules are negotiable with some but not all employers. 

Internships for undergraduates pay at least $10 an hour; graduate students will be paid at least $15 an hour. See individual listings for wage details. FICA benefits will be deducted from all wages.

All internships must be completed between the end of classes in May and the beginning of classes in August.
