Internships at The Henry Ford for current grad students

The Henry Ford is offering two internship opportunities for current graduate students.  The Henry Ford’s Simmons Internship Program is designed for current graduate students pursuing careers in museums, historical agencies, conservation labs, or related fields. This internship provides participants with a great opportunity to gain in-depth work experience in a major American history museum. In 2021 our internships will be hosted remotely.

Simmons interns are awarded stipends for a minimum 12-week full time internship. Starting and ending dates for individual internships are negotiable. The Simmons Internship Program is funded by the Vera W. and Walter E. Simmons Endowment Fund.

 

The two internship opportunities are available for 2021 are:

 

Applications should include:

  • A letter of application, stating how your graduate studies, work and/or volunteer experience and personal interests qualify you for the specific project
  • A résumé or curriculum vitae (CV)
  • Two letters of recommendation regarding your qualifications for the internship, submitted directly by the authors

 

Students may apply for more than one internship project but must submit a unique letter of application for each. Duplicate letters of recommendation and resumes will be considered.

The deadline for application is Friday, March 5.

Please submit inquiries, letter(s) of application, résumé or CV and letters of recommendation to HistoryInternship@TheHenryFord.org or Sophia Kloc, Office Administrator and Simmons Internship Coordinator, The Henry Ford 20900 Oakwood Blvd., Dearborn, MI 48124-5029.
