Appalachian Studies Association seeks interns

The Appalachian Studies Association has internship opportunities available for qualified graduate and undergraduate students.

The Appalachian Studies Association (ASA) is a national/international association with a regional focus and diverse membership of scholars, educators, practitioners, grassroots activists, students, individuals, groups and institutions. The ASA is headquartered at Marshall University and publishes the Journal of Appalachian Studies. Each year, the Association holds an annual conference that rotates throughout Appalachia and draws between 900 and 1,000 attendees. Students who work with the ASA will develop a broad skillset through hands-on professional experience. Interns may be asked to work with the Appalachian studies conference, the association website, a national, refereed journal, association newsletter, social media, silent auction/fundraising initiatives, and more! Responsibilities will vary dependent upon students’ fields of study and interests.

Students are expected to work with faculty advisors to identify available courses. Students will receive course credit and must be registered for a course by the end of the first week of classes. (For example: HST 680 or ENG 490). See the link below for additional information about this internship.
