History-Related Internships

Below is a list of internships that may be of interest to history majors for the summer or a Praxis course. Previous history majors have applied to the majority of these, often with success. It should be noted that while not every internship is paid, Bryn Mawr will often provide partial or full funding to students working unpaid internships, particularly during the summer.
