The deadline for the 2020 summer internship applications was March 30, 2020. Please check back next winter for the next summer internship opportunities.

The Robert H. Jackson Center offers internships for college students as an integral part of its mission. The Jackson Center is seeking applicants who have declared majors in a variety of fields, including Communications, History, Political Science, Community, and Justice Studies, Education, English, Pre-Law, Journalism, Marketing, Art History, Library Science, Museum Studies, Business, Management, or other liberal arts majors. Law students and graduate students are also encouraged to apply. All students currently enrolled in an accredited undergraduate or graduate school may apply. Students with a 3.00 G.P.A. or higher will be given priority.

Interns will work directly with their academic advisors and the staff of the Robert H. Jackson Center to determine their project. Projects will reflect the skills and interests of the intern and the needs of the Jackson Center – including exhibit development, research, web design, content creation for newsletters, social media and the website, videography, and resource organization. Summer interns work between Memorial Day and Labor Day for a period of up to 12 weeks on a schedule that will be agreed upon between the intern and the president. The president serves as a “coach” and there are regular opportunities to meet with all staff members on a range of issues and topics pertaining to the intern’s assignments and interests. In addition to the project work, there is an academic component. This year will focus on the 75th anniversary of the London Agreement and Charter, which established the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg.


The Robert H. Jackson Center does not provide housing, however previous interns have arranged for housing privately or through Jamestown Community College. We can facilitate that connection.
