Internships at the IHR
Therefore, in our centenary year we want to widen this programme and offer more paid internships and so grow our scheme. Not only benefitting our interns who receive valuable paid experience but also supporting the work of the IHR.
We would be delighted to recognise donors to this appeal as Centenary Donors* and acknowledged as such on our website and other media.

Dr Hannah Parker, the second of our interns and who undertook a variety of work within History and Policy, credits the internship with allowing her to stay in academia and enhance her CV with a range of activities. She states that without this chance,
It is likely that I would have needed to commit myself entirely to non-academic work and potentially moved away from academia permanently…In short, the internship has been invaluable to me both personally and in scholarship.
Vesna Curlic, a 2nd year doctoral student, focused on Jewish histories of London states that,
The stipend for this project made it financially feasible to take on this work... and it has been such a rewarding and enriching experience!
Interns receive a grant to take on one or two projects that support our work as the UK’s national centre for history.
They also benefit from skills training, mentoring, and a hands-on look at what it can mean to be an historian.
All donations to our internships programme will have a direct impact on creating new opportunities for talent to flourish.
