Internships at Utah State Archives

The Utah State Archives and Records Service offers internship opportunities for fall, spring, and summer semesters.. The competitive internships require an application and interview. Internships last for one semester (between 10 and 12 weeks), with exact schedules and number of hours being determined individually. Please note that some of our internships require in-person attendance, while some are remote or hybrid. Course credit can be provided if approved by interns' institutions. A stipend of $1,000 will be provided at the end of the semester.
