Summer 2022 Internships

Application Deadline: Monday December 1, 2021

The Center is pleased to provide undergraduate students the opportunity to engage with major Boston institutions through our Undergraduate Internships in the Humanities.

These stipend-supported summer internships are open to undergraduates who are majoring or minoring in a CAS humanities department or one of the following CAS departments/programs in the social sciences: Anthropology, Archaeology, African American Studies, History, Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights Studies. While students of any class standing are welcome to apply, application quality being equal, preference will be given to students who are further along in their degree program.

Prospective applicants should read reflections by previous summer interns to learn more about the experience. The 2022 internship descriptions as well as application components are found below.
