SUMMER 2021 INTERNSHIPS

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 2020 internships are now available on the Institute's website here. New internships will continue to be added before the application deadline.

APPLICATIONS FOR SUMMER 2021 ARE DUE FRIDAY MARCH 5 by 11:59 p.m. Submit one email with all required materials to Lisa Goff at lg6t@virginia.edu.

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 between $7.25 and $12.50 an hour; unless specified otherwise, graduate students will be paid between $12.50 and $16 an hour, unless specified otherwise. See individual listings for wage details. FICA benefits will be deducted from all wages.

ALL INTERNSHIPS MUST BE COMPLETED OVER THE SUMMER, BEFORE CLASSES BEGIN AGAIN IN THE FALL.
