Each summer, the Nau Center sponsors at least six paid summer internships—several at Civil War National Park Service sites (which have included Antietam, Appomattox, Fredericksburg, Manassas, and Richmond), one at the Virginia Museum of History and Culture, 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 Center digital projects—for UVA undergraduates, in conjunction with the Institute for Public History. Please see the Institute's website for more information.
The Riley Fund
The Riley Fund fellowships provide support for students to work as research assistants for professors doing Civil War era projects.
Generous support from the Lockhart family provides funds for one undergraduate summer internship.
Our past Lockhart Interns are:
Catherine Kolo, 2020
Sewell Undergraduate Interns
Support from Carl and Josie Sewell allows the Center to have two undergraduate interns during the academic year and one in the summer. The Center awarded its first two Sewell Undergraduate Internships in the academic year 2016-2017 and its first summer internship in 2018. Interns typically work on the Center’s digital projects.
Our past and present Sewell Undergraduate Interns are:
