Jewish Studies Internships

Meltzer Interns

The Jewish Studies Meltzer (formerly Bassini) Internship Program enables students to explore the intellectual dimensions of Jewish studies outside the classroom. During the semester, interns will develop and organize one event for students. Programs might include a discussion with a scholar, a panel discussion, a performance, or any other event that raises issues relevant to Jewish studies. The Meltzer Faculty and Grad Coordinator will assist with conceptualization and with clarification of financial and technical needs. Each intern will have a modest programming budget of around $200 for the Meltzer event, and each will receive a $200 research stipend. 

Applications are due in early September for fall internships, and early January for spring internships. Students will be informed early in the semester by e-mail. Application deadline for fall internships is Friday, September 21, 2018.
