The History Department is committed to the career development of our students and to enabling rich summer internship experiences for undergraduates interested in History.
To support students wishing to explore summer internship opportunities that relate to their historical interests, the department awards grants of up to $2000. These grants are intended to subsidize the costs of interning at an organization where students can draw on and extend the skills and interests that they have developed in Stanford History classes.
History Department summer funding is available to undergraduate students working on internships on any topic of historical interest, pending faculty review of the application materials. In keeping with our commitment to fostering historical interest across the university, this opportunity is open to any undergraduate student who has taken (or is taking) at least one History course.
How to Apply
Interested students should
- submit a History Undergraduate Grant Application Form explaining the nature of the internship position (including dates of employment) and its engagement with historical topics and questions
- provide a letter from the organization that includes the name and contact information of the internship supervisor
- send both items to the Student Services Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications are due on April 23, 2021 at 5pm. Proposals will be read by a committee of History faculty.
Note: Students are required to identify their own internship arrangement and use appropriate due diligence in vetting the internship position. The Department of History will provide funding only and recuses itself from all other responsibilities. In applying for this grant, students release Stanford University and the Department of History from any liability arising in connection to this internship opportunity.
