Dr. Jerome Gillen '66 History Summer Internship

ABOUT THE PROJECT

In honor of Dr. Jerome Gillen’s many years of service to Saint Peter’s University, the history department has established a student internship in his name. The summer internship is designed to give students the opportunity to work in a historical society archive based in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area where they will gain first-hand experiences working with historical archival materials. Students will work with archivists and others on a specific research project to be completed during the internship. The completed project will be highlighted on the University's history department webpage.

Goals:

  • Recipients of the internship will develop practical research skills and gain experience working in a professional environment.

  • They will complete a tangible project on local New Jersey history.

  • They will receive a letter from the mentor they worked with attesting to their accomplishments and skills.

  • They will have a valuable experience to add to their resume and tout to employers.

WHY GIVE?

We hope to raise the necessary funds to support this internship for three years. As part of the experience, the intern will receive a $1,000 stipend as well as $200 travel stipend, if necessary. Therefore, our goal is to raise $3,600 in total so that a strong foundation can be laid from which we hope many interns will be able to follow their passion in Dr. Gillen's name.

Thank you for your support!
