Illinois Humanities regularly recruits college and post-college interns to work directly with our staff to support our various programs and overall mission. Internships are designed to meet each intern’s specific skills and interests, while working closely with an Illinois Humanities staff member. By the end of the internship, it is our goal that interns will have been exposed to the various aspects of an organization steeped in the state’s arts and humanities world, while having completed a project they can claim as their own.
