Dollar Bank Internship

Dollar Bank Internship

Through the generous support of Dollar Bank, the History Department is pleased to announce the renewal of its $2,000 paid archival internship. Dollar Bank opened its doors in 1855 and is one of the oldest financial institutions in Pittsburgh. Among the Bank's assets is its complete archive of business records dating from the day it opened until the 1960s. The Bank has a professional archivist who organizes and processes these and other materials relating to the Bank's history. Our intern will assist the archivist, who will act as the internship director, in this work.

This unique internship opportunity is available to any Public History  student who has completed PHST 521: Introduction to Archives before the start date of the internship in January 2018. It will fulfill the requirements of the Archival Internship course (PHST 658).

Current students who meet the above criteria can apply. The application (hyperlink) deadline is October 1, 2017 and the successful applicant will be notified by October 15, 2017.

This is an excellent opportunity for students to learn about the world of corporate archives management, to work in one of Pittsburgh's premier financial institutions, and to receive financial support while completing graduate coursework.
