The intern program includes a heavy focus on the application of computer technology to both the historical method and archival practice. Some assignments may require regular off-site work. Interns will receive an hourly wage, paid bi-weekly. Hourly rates are based on education level - high school at $8.70 per hour, undergraduate at $10.63 per hour, and graduate at $11.25 per hour.
