Internship Program with the Smithsonian-affiliated Senator John Heinz History Center

The History Department at Carnegie Mellon has recently developed an internship program that allows an advanced student to apply for and -- if accepted -- carry out a semester-long internship at the Center working with a professional staff member from the archives, museum, or administrative divisions of the center with full stipend and a release from teaching duties. Internships can involve completing a research project based on the center's collections, developing the background for an exhibit, or working closely with staff in marketing, communications or other administrative offices of the center.
