Employer Guidelines

Summer internships partially funded by the Golz Fellowship require the submission of extra information and adherence to the guidelines stated on this page.

Awards:  Award amounts will be adjusted depending upon the employer’s ability to provide partial remuneration.

Requirements:  Sponsoring organizations must meet the following criteria:

  • Project or assignments must involve a significant and substantive learning component that enables the student to apply the skill, methods and content learned in our courses through direct service with a business, museum, archive, governmental agency or non-profit organization.  Employers must provide a letter of commitment stating their willingness to participate in this program and outlining expected internship responsibilities and opportunities for professional growth for the student.
  • Internships require a minimum of 250 hours during the summer break. This can be completed in eight to ten weeks. No internship may exceed 40 hours per week to comply with wage and hour laws.
  • The Sponsoring Organization must also fill out a Letter of Commitment attached on this page.

Selection Process: Once the employer has provided a letter of commitment to a Bowdoin student, the student will submit an application for review by the History Department. The department will make awards to students who best meet the goals of the Golz internship program. 

Timeline: Student applications are due to the History Department at Bowdoin College by March 27, 2020. Awards will be announced to students by April 17. Regretfully, there are students who may have to withdraw from their prospective internships at your organization if they are not awarded funding. We thank you for your willingness to participate in the application process.
