In addition to observing various water pollutants, they had an opportunity to see some of the river’s local residents, including kingfishers, bald eagles, and even Goose George.
The American Historical Association is seeking undergraduate students to work remotely as interns during the fall semester. AHA interns work on a variety of projects and gain insight into historical and nonprofit work. Students will be matched with an AHA staff member who will mentor and oversee their work. They will have an opportunity to attend departmental and general staff meetings and to learn about the day-to-day work of the world’s largest professional association of historians.
Accepted interns will need to receive either a stipend or course credit from their home institutions; we understand this is not possible in many cases, but we cannot accept an intern who receives neither stipend nor course credit. Hours are negotiable, though we are estimating approximately a 10-20 hour/week commitment during the fall, depending on the student’s schedule.
In their cover letter, interested candidates should indicate which department and/or project they are most interested in working with and any relevant experiences.
Applications are due by Friday, August 27, and will be considered on a rolling basis.
How to apply:
Please contact Alexandra Levy, AHA’s digital communications coordinator, with any questions.
