Summer 2023 History Internships at Eisenhower Site
Eisenhower National Historic Site is currently accepting applications for summer internships for 2023. These internships would take place between late May and early August and include interpretation positions. These internships are made possible thanks to generous grants from the Robert M. Lauman Charitable Foundation of Lancaster County and the Dwight D. Eisenhower Society of Gettysburg.
Interpretation interns give house tours of the Eisenhower home, provide visitor services, and present other interpretive programming they have researched and prepared. Interns also have the opportunity to work on special projects involving social media and 21st Century public history interpretation. Eisenhower National Historic Site’s interpretive programming includes political, cultural, social, and military history topics relating to the lives of Dwight and Mamie Eisenhower and the eras in which they lived. We are always looking for how we can best use our historic resources and stories to be part of conversations that are happening today about our society and world.
Summer Interns work a 40-hour week (interpretation interns should expect to work weekends) with formal and informal on-the-job training provided. The internships are not paid, but dormitory-style housing and a living stipend of ($2000) are provided.
Students who have completed at least one year of college and are working toward degrees in history, political science, museum studies, park management, education, graphic design, or related fields are welcome to apply. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. To be considered for a summer 2023 position, it is best to have your resume and cover letter submitted by the end of January 2023.
For questions and to submit your application please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. To apply, email your resume with two professional references and a cover letter explaining your interest. To learn more about the Eisenhower Site visit www.nps.gov/eise.
