International Coalition of Sites of Conscience Summer Internships


We invite applications for eight in-person and eight virtual internships as part of a collaboration between Newcastle University and the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience (ICSC), a global network of historic sites, museums and memory initiatives that connects past struggles to today's movements for human rights (Sites of Conscience).

The internships will be hosted by ICSC member sites around the globe, with locations in Africa, Asia, North America, and Europe. This is a unique opportunity to work with some incredible organisations in the museum, culture and heritage sector undertaking critical projects to support social justice. Funding is available for both virtual and in-person internships. 


The internships are open to current students on postgraduate degrees (PhD, research and taught) and undergraduate degrees (for students who have completed two years of study). Students in their final year are eligible to apply.

Funding is available for both in-person and virtual internships; however funding will differ depending on whether the internship is in-person or virtual.
