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 summer intern program, the NHA now offers 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.

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, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, adn Kean University have all worked on projects that have been incorporated into aspects of the NHA.
