The Kansas Historical Society will offer two paid internships this summer. The internships are full-time, 40 hours per week for eight weeks, and include a $2,500 stipend.
The John Ripley Internship is named for a Topeka businessman well-known for his interest in local history. Undergraduate and graduate students studying in a related field qualify for the internship if they meet at least one of three requirements: studying at Washburn University, graduated from a high school in Shawnee County, or are a resident of Shawnee County.
The Lela Barnes-Marjorie L. Crump Archival Internship is for graduate students enrolled in Kansas colleges and universities and Kansas residents attending any graduate school. The internship will focus on archival arrangement and description and possibly other activities working with the society’s manuscripts collection.
