Apply for an Internship

U.S. History Scene is now accepting undergraduate and graduate applications for its Summer 2014 Internship Program. U.S. History Scene is a multimedia history education project founded by Harvard historians dedicated to providing history teachers and students with free access to premier digital resources, scholarship, and archives (without the dust)! Using U.S. History Scene, teachers can incorporate into their curriculum cutting-edge research from top-tier universities that is relevant and pluralistic in scope.

U.S. History Scene is currently seeking applicants for its Summer 2014 Historical Writing and Research Internship Program. Interns will gain valuable writing and publishing skills through the process of writing, submitting, and editing original multimedia research articles, book reviews, and classroom lesson plans. An education and curriculum track is available for students in Education programs.

All interns will work one-on-one with our Editorial Board to gain experience in primary source research, editing, and publishing. Internships are unpaid, but we will assist interns in applying for stipends or university credit. Internships can be performed via telecommute from your home university.

To apply: Interested undergraduates and graduate students should submit a resume/ CV, unofficial transcript, and a writing sample to Executive Editor Jennifer Ostwinkle at Editors@USHistoryScene.com by April 21, 2014. Applicants are asked to submit a list of five history articles they would be interested in working on; these topics are not binding, but help us understand applicants’ research interests. Applicants will be notified of their application decision in May 2014.

For more information, please contact Jennifer at Editors@USHistoryScene.com.
