Calling for Heritage Internship Ideas!

4Culture Heritage is now accepting remote internship proposals from heritage organizations in King County! Proposal deadline is at 5:00 pm PST on January 15, 2021.

The King County Heritage Internship Program has been part of our heritage capacity-building programs since 2018. In the past, we paired graduate students with host sites around the county to complete help complete projects—you can read testimonials from interns in 2018 and 2019. After the cancellation of the 2020 program due to COVID-19, we have reformatted the program to adapt to the reality of social distancing, to be open to the varying needs of heritage organizations during this time, and to be more inclusive for possible host sites.

In this iteration of the program, we are seeking engaging internship ideas that target a specific challenge that your organization is currently facing. We will select up to three heritage organizations to participate as remote host sites during the summer of 2021. We will ask that host sites to participate in orientation, communicate with the interns throughout the run of the internship, and participate in program evaluation at the end. We will provide stipends for the interns, administrative support in intern management, and overall project management.

Applicants can submit proposals by completing an application on the 4Culture grant portal and updating their 2021 demographic information. Please read this document for the full proposal instructions.

If you wish to learn more about the program or would like assistance creating an effective proposal, please join us for a virtual workshop on Wednesday, November 18, at 12:00 pm—register here.
