Summer Internships at Gettysburg
Gettysburg National Military Park offers summer internships to college-level students who are self-motivated, enthusiastic, and interested in history. We prefer people who seek to share their talents while gaining valuable work experience. Internships are typically offered in the summer months when the park is busiest, lasting roughly twelve weeks from mid-May through mid-August. Positions are unpaid, although the park provides free housing and a cost of living stipend. Interns work forty hours each week and weekend work can be expected. There are two main types of internship opportunities: 1) Division of Interpretation and Visitor Services, and 2) Office of the Visual Information Specialist.
We usually begin accepting applications in the fall of each year for the following summer. We will update this page and post to our social media sites when we begin the open application window.
Eisenhower National Historic Site also offers summer internships in Interpretation and Museum Services. For further information, visit the Eisenhower National Historic Site web site.
