Summer Internships

Each summer, the Nau Civil War Center sponsors at least seven paid summer internships—several at Civil War National Park Service sites (which have included Antietam, Appomattox, Fredericksburg, Manassas, and Richmond), one at the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society, one working at the Daughters of Zion Cemetery, one at the Center for Digital History at Mount Vernon, and one working on our internal Nau Civil War Center digital projects—for UVA undergraduates, in conjunction with the Institute for Public History. Please see the Institute's website for more information.

Check out these recent blog posts about our internships at Manassas, Fredericksburg, and the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society!
