Alderson Internship Grant Program

The AASLH (American Association for State and Local History) recognizes the demand for students to gain "real world" experience and for members to get qualified interns into their institutions. AASLH now offers an internship opportunity (up to $1,000) for three of its members to hire a summer intern. The host institution must provide information on what they expect their intern to do and match funds at a 1:4 level (that is $1 for every $4 AASLH provides).
  • Applicants must be an institutional member of AASLH.
  • Applicants must have an annual operating budget under $250,000.
  • Application must be received by AASLH office by 5 p.m. on December 12.
