The National Historical Publications & Records Commission (NHPRC) is pleased to announce that has an opening for an Historical Records Grant Intern. The internship is to be in an office at the historic National Archives building located near the National Mall in downtown Washington,DC. Created in 1934, the NHPRC is a statutory body affiliated with the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), which supports a wide range of activities to preserve, publish, and encourage the use of documentary sources– created in every medium and ranging from quill pen to computer–relating to the history of the United States.
The Historical Records Grant Internship will assist the administrative staff in managing several of the grant programs, such as the “Access to Historical Records: Major Initiatives” program and “Access to Historica Records: Archival Projects” program. Over the last 50 years, the NHPRC has allocated funding provided by Congress to grant activities in every state and territory in order for the American people to discover and use records that increase understanding of our democracy, history, and culture.
This unpaid internship is for currently enrolled college and university undergraduate or graduate students that are in good standing with their academic institution and have a demonstrable interest in the types of activities supported by the work of the NHPRC and the National Archives. All internship applicants must be at least 16 years old and a citizen or national (for some American territories) of the United States. Any student that is accepted as an intern will undergo a National Agency Check and Inquiry (NACI) to determine suitability for a Federal Identity Card. Anyone under the age of 18, if conditionally accepted as an intern, must provide written parental permission to participate.
