Internship: Office of Federal/State Partnership

The Office of Federal/State Partnership brings humanities education, lifelong learning, and public humanities programming to communities across the country by providing general operating support grants to more than 50 state and territorial humanities councils. Together, Federal/State Partnership and the councils advance public understanding of the humanities, while enhancing public awareness of, access to, and support for the humanities on a local, grassroots level.


We are looking for interns with a passion for the humanities and strong writing, communications, and organizational skills. Interns must be professional, self-directed, pay close attention to detail, and able to complete tasks in a timely manner. Potential projects include research on public humanities topics, writing for our website and e-newsletter, digital records management, and data analysis.

Current graduate students, or upper level undergraduates, in public history, history, library science/information management, museum studies, and other humanities-related disciplines are encouraged to apply.

We encourage candidates to submit one of the following types of writing samples: blog post, news article, newsletter, short narrative writing piece, expository writing, or a short essay on a humanities topic. 

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