Internship Program

As you know the Jefferson County Historical Association (JCHA) is located in Steubenville, Ohio. We seek to partner with F. U. S. to establish a volunteer independent study internship program for juniors/seniors majoring in history or library science. The student will benefit from a ‘hands on’ approach preserving historical materials, establishing research priorities and primary research methods, and developing independent study skills.

The student’s first priority is to meet the educational standards set by F. U. S.. A JCHA committee can meet with you and the candidate to determine a project that will be beneficial to the student and our association. Successful completion of the independent study will be determine by requirements that are set forth by the student’s professor. A copy of a term paper, catalog, index, etc. produced by the student will be kept in our files for our use.

Students will be observed and guided by museum personnel, but emphasis will be allowing the student to proceed independently.

Our program will be supervised by Barry Bardone. His experience is listed below.
