College students in the New York/New Jersey area who are interested in Armenian history, literature, arts and contemporary issues are invited to apply to become an intern at the Zohrab Center this Fall.
ZIC interns assist in cataloging books, digitizing rare materials, assisting students and scholars with research, assisting with ZIC events, and maintaining the ZIC blog.
“This summer at the Zohrab Center I have had in my hand countless precious Armenian books, some of them 100 or 200 years old, published in places like Constantinople, Tiflis, Bucharest, Jerusalem, Paris, Aleppo, New York,” said Alex Calikyan, entering his third year at the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC. “I have a new appreciation for the breadth and depth of Armenian civilization, and of the intellectual energy of our people.”
College students in the NY/NJ metropolitan area who are able to devote up to 10 hours per week at the ZIC are welcome to apply. Hours are flexible. Reading knowledge of Armenian is preferred but not required. A modest hourly stipend will be provided. Limited internships are available.
