The SCHS offers an intensive hands-on internship program to college students to gain practical experience in a local history museum. Interns must be either undergraduate or graduate students with some background or interest in history, museum studies, and/or education. Applicants should be enthusiastic, creative, and have strong written and oral communication skills. Interning at SCHS will give students a great introduction to the field of local history and non-profit work, and will help build contacts and personal interests.
