Internships

The Nantucket Historical Association’s internship program allows a dynamic group of students with varied interests, strengths, and goals to immerse themselves in an outstanding educational and professional environment. Interns learn and work directly with professionals in a team-based, collaborative environment.

Internships and Semester-Long Learning

In addition to the long-established and very successful summer intern program, the NHA is now adding semester-long learning internships to our education programs. This initiative is important because it gives preference to students coming on island from Labor Day through Memorial Day, rather than during the congested summer months when accommodations are hard to come by. The objective is to identify meaningful work that matches students’ interests and passions that then creates a force-multiplier effect.  Please be aware of the application deadlines for internships to which you are applying.

On-island and class-based learning with select colleges is building strong momentum. Students and faculty from Boston University, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, the New York School of Interior Design, Princeton University, Roger Williams University, Salve Regina University, and Worcester Polytechnic Institute have signed on thus far in 2018.
