C. Dallett Hemphill Summer Internship Program


The McNeil Center for Early American Studies sponsors two summer internships to create paid opportunities for undergraduate students and terminal masters students attending MCEAS Consortium institutions to develop their interests and skills in doing history in professional settings. Toward this end, the McNeil Center partners with local institutions that are willing to emphasize mentorship and demonstrate a commitment to the professional and intellectual development of the interns. Each internship will have components including research, analysis, and communication revolving around a public-facing project or projects at the partner institution. Interns will also be encouraged to participate in the McNeil Center's summer programming.

Internships will last approximately 8 weeks and will require full-time on-site work (35 hours per week) in the Philadelphia area. Beginning and end dates will be arranged between the hosting institution and the intern, but internships should be completed by Sept. 1.

Interns will receive a $3,000 stipend. The stipend is intended to cover housing in the Philadelphia area, travel to and from Philadelphia, and daily living expenses – all arrangements and costs for which are the responsibility of the intern. One half of the stipend will be paid upon arrival in Philadelphia, and the second half will be remitted at the completion of the internship.
