The deadline for the 2020 summer internship applications is Monday, March 16. Interns will work directly with their academic advisors and the staff of the Robert H. Jackson Center to determine their project. Projects will reflect the skills and interests of the intern and the needs of the Jackson Center – including exhibit development, research, web design, content creation for newsletters, social media and the website, videography, and resource organization.

Summer interns work between Memorial Day and Labor Day for a period of up to 12 weeks on a schedule that will be agreed upon between the intern and the president.
