Mosse Program Internship, Research Fellowships, and Other Opportunities

Welcome back to campus, everyone - and welcome to the first blog post of 2017!  Internship and research opportunities abound; five are listed below the cut, but please check the calendar in the sidebar for other fellowships, internships, or scholarships.

George L. Mosse Program Undergraduate Internship
The George L. Mosse Program in History is accepting applications for a Spring 2017 internship (January-May). The selected candidate will be interested in European history, Jewish history, digital humanities, and public history and will work with the Mosse Program on several projects, including the George L. Mosse Digital Archive, the Program website, and the George L. Mosse Library. This is a paid position ($10/hr).

The full internship description and its learning objectives are available here.

To apply, send a one-page resume (including a list of completed history courses) to Skye Doney, Ph.D., Mosse Program Assistant Director, at

Hilldale Undergraduate/Faculty Research Fellowship
The Hilldale Fellowship supports students with at least junior standing who wish to complete a research project in collaboration with UW faculty or academic staff. Students receive $3000 to offset research costs (travel, supplies, etc.) and faculty members receive $1000. Applicants must submit a research proposal of up to five pages detailing the project they wish to complete.

Applications are due February 13. For more information about the Hilldale Fellowships, please see

**NOTE: Even if you will not have junior standing by the end of May, keep the Hilldale fellowships in mind for next year and consider applying for the Sophomore Research Fellowship this year - it’s never too early to start talking to your professors about research!

Sophomore Research Fellowship
The Sophomore Research Fellowship is similar to the Hilldale in that it supports undergrad research in collaboration with faculty, but it has much broader eligibility: sophomores, first-year students who have more than 24 credits after May 2017, and first-year transfer students are all eligible to apply. Students receive $2500 and faculty receive $500. (Students may NOT apply for both the Hilldale and the Sophomore Research Fellowship in the same year).

Applications are due February 27. For more information, please see

Zillman Summer Research Fellowship
The UW-Madison chapter of Phi Kappa Phi, an interdisciplinary honor society, supports the Summer Scholars Program for students who would like to enrich their education through summer projects or internships outside of Madison that are not part of their formal curriculum or requirements. Applicants MUST be members of Phi Kappa Phi; contact Deborah Cole ( for information about joining the society. Information about the Zillman fellowship is available at

U.S. Department of State Student Internship Program (Fall 2017)
