The American Historical Association is seeking undergraduate students to work remotely as interns during the spring 2022 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 hour/week commitment during the spring, depending on the student’s schedule.
In their cover letter, interested candidates should indicate any relevant experiences.
· 2 interns will work with the AHA marketing team to update records in the AHA’s database in order to increase the number of history faculty and graduate students the AHA can contact and recruit for membership. Because of the type of work involved, the ideal candidate for this internship is a history major or minor with an interest in nonprofit management, museum studies, marketing, economics, or business. Interns should also have a basic familiarity with online databases.
Application review will begin on Friday, December 10, 2021.
