Summer 2017 Internships at the Church History Library!


All majors are welcome to apply for one of our internship spots with the Joseph Smith Papers Project or the Historic Sites Division.



Send your resume and cover letter to Maren Kirwan at by April 20, 2017. Please use this sample resume for guidance on formatting and the information to include. Please include details of your work experience, skills, and competencies, especially as they relate to the job description of this internship. 

IMPORTANT: This internship requires a time commitment of 7-10 hours per week over the course of Spring/Summer semester. It is preferred that students devote one full day to the internship (for example working from 8-5 pm every Tuesday) since it does require that you commute to Salt Lake City. If you apply, it is expected that you will have room in your schedule to accommodate these hours. Please indicate in your cover letter what day you plan on working. You will be expected to register for 3.0 credits of History 199R.  DO NOT APPLY IF YOU CANNOT ACCOMMODATE THIS SCHEDULE.
