The National Endowment for the Humanities’ EDSITEment team is currently looking for qualified applicants for the NEH’s Summer 2019 Internship Program. EDSITEment (edsitement.neh.gov) is a website sponsored by the NEH that offers teachers, students, and parents high-quality teaching and learning materials in the subject areas of Art & Culture, Foreign Languages, History & Social Studies and Literature and Language Arts. All materials housed at EDSITEment have been reviewed by humanities scholars, classroom teachers and education administrators for content, design and educational value.
Ideal candidates should be rising seniors, recent college graduates, or students enrolled in a graduate program in education or a humanities discipline. Interns should have strong writing and editing skills, be social media savvy, and have an interest in education and the humanities. We strongly encourage that candidates submit one of the following types of writing samples: blog post, news article, press release, review, short narrative writing piece, expository writing, or a short essay on a humanities topic.
