Internships Available For Library and Museum Positions

Truman has formed partnerships with several historical museums and libraries giving students the opportunity to apply for unique summer internships.

All internships are eight weeks, corresponding with Truman’s eight-week summer session. History majors may apply up to six hours of internship credit toward their major. Other majors need to check with their advisors.

A full-time internship is available at the Harry S. Truman Presidential Library and Museum in Independence, Mo. This is a 40-hour-a-week internship that comes with a scholarship for nine hours of in-state tuition (out-of-state students pay the difference).  

Part-time internships are available through the National World War I Museum in Kansas City, the Missouri History Museum in St. Louis and the Mercantile Library in St. Louis on the UMSL campus. These internships ask for a commitment of 20 hours per week. Students may take three to five hours of credit hours and tuition is paid by the student.

The Judicial Archives Project on Truman’s campus is offering a part-time internship that is a commitment of 15 hours per week. Students may take three hours of credit and tuition is paid by the student.

Contact Jeff Gall at for an application for any of these internships. All applications are due Dec. 1.
