AHA Summer Internships

The American Historical Association is seeking undergraduate students to work remotely as interns during the summer semester. AHA interns work on a variety of projects and gain insight into historical and nonprofit work. Students will be matched with an AHA staff member who will mentor and oversee their work. They will have an opportunity to attend departmental and general staff meetings and to learn about the day-to-day work of the world’s largest professional association of historians.

The Baker-Nord Center will provide a summer stipend for any CWRU humanities major who is accepted into the AHA summer intern program.

How to apply:
  • Log into your MY AHA account. If you don’t have an account, you can create one for free.
