Historic New England posts internship projects twice annually on November 1 for spring internships and on March 1 for summer internships. We invite applications from graduate and undergraduate students pursuing degrees in American studies, American history, museum studies, arts administration, preservation studies, art and architectural history, library and information science, and related fields. Interns have the opportunity to work with Historic New England’s extraordinary and rich collection of historic structures and landscapes, archival collections of photographs, architectural drawings, and ephemera, and material culture collections. Internships require a minimum commitment of eight hours per week, typically during regular business hours, and are usually located at Otis House in Boston; the Lyman Estate in Waltham, Mass.; or our collections facility in Haverhill, Mass.
