Whether you are a student of history, business, art, theatre, or historic preservation, The Edith Bolling Wilson Birthplace Foundation and Museum offers a variety of unpaid and for credit internship programs. Our internships are a prearranged learning experience scheduled within a specific time frame, though scheduling is flexible within the time frame. The experience must be relevant to the intern’s academic and professional goals, and to research and activities of the Museum.
Interns have been integral to the following Museum programs:
- Created the first Museum web site
- Created the Time Line Project
- Researched the Bolling Home and the Bolling family (their efforts are incorporated in the Pre-renovation Birthplace Tour and exhibit panels)
- Wrote a paper on the origins of Mother’s Day for the Museum publication – Tea Time
- Assisted a historical architect in assessing the Bolling Home and Museum building
- Created Girl Scout Patch to honor Mrs. Wilson as First Honorary President of Girl Scouts in 1917
Interns have also helped Museum staff with being gallery and tour guides, research, program creation, grants, meetings, special programs, and daily operations.
