Unfortunately our institution has been unable to provide direct funding for interns, however we do partner with a nearby college (approx. 30 minutes away) to provide their history/museum studies students with the possibility of a summer internship. Fortunately, their college offers stipends for students to apply for as experiential learning with approved host sites (us, for instance). Being near the campus, most interns receive discounted lodging from the college over the summer and have told us that the stipend covers their lodging, meals, and other basic requirements as well.For reference, we are a small local-history museum in Ohio (about 1.5 hours from both Cleveland and Columbus). It is a very rural area, with the college located in a small city 30 miles away.The stipend amounts are listed below.
