Internships

The Blue Earth County Historical Society (BECHS) is currently seeking up and coming professionals for unpaid internships. The BECHS staff works with interns to meet many goals of the Society. BECHS has opportunities for interns from the undergraduate and/or graduate level. Interns work on a variety of projects and programs at the History Center or at the R. D. Hubbard House. Internships are individually designed to meet the needs of both the student and the Society. We will consider students from all disciplines if course work relates to internship duties. BECHS staff are willing to meet with academic advisers to discuss the progress and objectives during the internship. Please help us continue to meet our goal of preserving the history of Blue Earth County.

The Internship Application is the first step towards an internship at BECHS. Please complete the form and return it to the History Center at 424 Warren Street, Mankato or by email to the Executive Director.
