Internship Opportunities

The Wilford Woodruff Papers Foundation is excited to announce a new opportunity for college and high school students to join the Wilford Woodruff Papers Project as interns. Through a generous grant from the Sorenson Legacy Foundation we are now able to hire 10 qualified interns each semester for the next 3 years. 


All current paid internships are virtual, which means any high school, undergraduate, or graduate student residing in the United States can contribute to this unique project. (If you're interested in an unpaid internship, there is no location restriction). We currently have interns who are pursuing studies in Editing, Publishing, History, Humanities, Family History, and Data Sciences. However, internships are available in any discipline and we will also consider Senior Project proposals. 


For more information, please watch this video introduction by three of our current interns.
