New-York Historical Society

New York, NY

 Student Historian interns are high school-aged students who use the resources of New-York Historical to conduct exciting research and share their scholarship through creative projects. Interns meet with professional staff to learn about careers in the museum, library, and history fields; work collaboratively with fellow students to develop their public speaking and leadership skills; and engage in hands-on work to deepen their understanding of American history and art.
