High School Internships
“I met a lot of new and interesting people. I successfully completed a research project and comfortably presented in front of an audience. I have gotten to know and love this museum setting.” – Tyler Lee, 2012 Student Historian
The New-York Historical Society is offering full-time summer internships in both our museum and library divisions. From modeling creative exhibition layouts to researching with our curators, college and graduate interns experience unparalleled career development and cultivate fruitful professional relationships. Applicants who are selected to participate in this rewarding yet demanding experience will either be paid $9.00/hour or receive academic credit, depending on the intern’s school requirements. Participants are required to work 35 hours a week.

Scholars Program: Hands-on History for Teens
“I would recommend this program to my peers because the chance to work with original documents and a highly specialized museum and library staff is an opportunity seldom offered to high school students.”
– Andrew Sobelsohn, Summer Scholar 2014
