Posner Center Internship Program
Application Deadline 23 April 5pm
The Posner Center Internship Program is searching for applicants! I am seeking your help to advertise and market the internship opportunity to your students. And thank you for helping out in the past – we had a record 22 applicants for the spring 2010 internship!
As you know, the goal of the program is to provide a practical experience. During the fall 2010 semester, the student will research their own topic, using books and artifacts in the Posner Memorial Collection in preparation for a spring 2011 exhibit at the Posner Center. The exhibit will be promoted by the University Libraries and accessible to all Posner Center visitors, including the University’s Board of Trustees.
The application requires that students compose an essay explaining their interest or research question, suggesting possible books to use from the Posner Memorial Collection and including a brief bio.
