Summer interns

Coming soon: Leonard Schaeffer Fellowship opportunities.


Hundreds of students have worked at the Miller Center since its founding in 1975. They have contributed significantly to the work produced here in a variety of ways—from compiling briefing binders on former officials being interviewed for Presidential Oral History Programs and transcribing and annotating tapes in the Presidential Recordings Program to conducting research for our scholars. 

Please contact Stefanie Georgakis Abbott if you are a former Miller center student intern or employee and would like to learn more about ways to get involved.
