Internship: Office of Communications

The NEH Office of Communications seeks interns to assist in its work of representing the National Endowment for the Humanities in communications with the media and members of the public. The mission of the Office of Communications is to disseminate information about NEH grant programs and products and  promote the importance of the humanities for our country and its citizens. More information about the agency and the projects we fund is available online.

Applicants should have strong writing and communication skills in addition to a passion for the humanities. Interns must be able to complete tasks in a timely manner, be professional, and pay close attention to detail. Applicants must work well as part of a team, as the Communications staff works closely and collaboratively. Experience working with Microsoft Excel, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook is preferred. Graphic and visual design skills would also be appreciated. Duties will include creating social media content, drafting press releases, contacting media, updating press lists, assisting with research, and monitoring media coverage.

In your cover letter please highlight any communications/public relations experience you have, as well as why you enjoy the humanities. Also be sure to include a phone number and e-mail address where you can be reached, and the time period for which you are available.

If you have any questions, please contact the NEH Internship Coordinator at 202 606-8317 or internships@neh.gov. We look forward to hearing from you.
