Studio assistants are students who assist instructors and fellow students and are responsible for maintaining the school’s standards for studio operation. Assistants receive housing and meals, and pay only the $50 nonrefundable processing fee. Assistants are selected based on their knowledge of a working studio. In addition to 25–40 hours of work each week, studio assistants are required to work from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM on the day before and the day after their session, and must make travel arrangements which will allow them to meet this requirement. If you cannot meet this requirement, please do not apply. Many instructors select their own assistants; check the list below to determine availability of positions before applying.
To apply, check the studio assistant box on the application form, and include a letter explaining your experience in the field and your interest in the class, along with a résume, two letters of recommendation, five printed images of your work (maximum size 8-1/2 x 11, no slides or CDs), and the $50 processing fee. Applications must be received no later than February 15, and must include letters of reference. Applicants will be notified by April 1.
International students note: because the U.S. government considers our studio assistant program to be work for hire, students who are not U.S. citizens may not receive studio assistantships unless they have a work permit.

The Hall Center's Humanities Summer Graduate Internship program supports exceptional and well-rounded PhD or MA students who demonstrate the ability to make outstanding contributions in their chosen humanities or social science disciplines and are interested in both interdisciplinary studies and community outreach.
Internships pay $10 per hour for up to 30 hours per week over the course of ten weeks (from mid-May through the end of July) up to a maximum of $3,000. Two Summer Graduate Interns will be selected to work on projects at two of the following local non-profit agencies:
A. Kansas City Public Library (14 W. 10th Street, Kansas City, MO 64105). Potential Internship assignments include image research and content development for various digital and online projects focusing on the history of Kansas City; research and content development for programming and exhibits focusing on the Civil War along the Missouri-Kansas border; and assisting with the development of humanities-related programming. The Graduate Student Intern will work under the direct supervision of the Library's director of public affairs.
B. Kansas State Historical Society (6425 SW 6th Avenue, Topeka KS 66615-1099) serves nearly 7 million people annually through its digital resources. Two of the most popular features of the agency's web site are Kansas Memory, which makes primary source material available to students and the public, and Kansapedia, an on-line encyclopedia of Kansas history aimed at a general audience. This intern position would work on both projects. The intern would given an historical topic or theme and asked to select materials from the agency's collections to create descriptions and other metadata to be included in Kansas Memory. The descriptions would highlight the main content of the item and provide limited historical context when appropriate. The intern would also be asked to write short articles for Kansapedia on the historical topics researched, and prepare work orders to send materials to the lab to be scanned.
C. Mid-America Arts Alliance (2018 Baltimore Avenue, Kansas City, MO 64108). This position will interact in significant ways with ongoing humanities-based exhibition programs at Mid-America. The intern will have a chance to function as a core team member on the creation and evaluation of multiple public programming initiatives, including: 1) exhibition development work for education resources and programming guide, and specifically for an exhibition examining the work of Frank Lloyd Wright; 2) a project to help audiences find humanities links with architecture and the built environment; 3) the final planning and implementation of the Humanities exhibition venue orientation sessions in support of For All the World to See, an NEH on the Road project; 4) assisting venues with the connection of topics presented in the exhibition with individual community outreach and development programs; and 5) assisting with evaluation, with a focus on community outreach and engagement and programming-related capacity building.
Eligible applicants will:
1. Be currently enrolled KU graduate students in any humanities or social science discipline who have successfully completed at least one semester of full time coursework toward an MA or PhD degree;
2. Demonstrate a high level of motivation, including the ability to work independently and establish and achieve goals; and
3. Have the ability to do humanities research, to write cogently and with economy (photo research and scanning experience a plus).
Graduate Interns are required to:
1. Fulfill the terms of their internship agreement with the community partner.
2. Submit a brief report to the Hall Center detailing the work they completed during the internship and explaining how this experience will further their research and/or career aspirations in the humanities. The report is due within 30 days of completion of the internship.
All application materials must be submitted through the Hall Center Competitions Portal. Paper submissions will not be accepted. For an application to be verified as complete, and thus forwarded for committee review, applicants must:
1. Create an account or log in to an existing account.
2. Select the Apply Now button next to this competition.
3. Complete the Applicant Information form in the Portal.
4. Upload the following materials as 2 separate PDF or Word files:
Letter of application not to exceed four double-spaced pages, with one-inch margins and twelve-point type. The letter should provide a statement of interest in the internship; a description of your short-term and long-term career goals and how the internship would help you meet these goals; and a summary of any experience or special skills that relate to the duties of the internship.
5. Ensure the receipt of two original letters of recommendation in English, including one letter from a departmental officer who can certify that the applicant is currently enrolled and has completed at least one semester of fulltime coursework toward an MA or PhD. Reference letters should address the applicant's interest in the public humanities, ability to work independently, and writing skills.
All reference letters must be submitted via the Hall Center Competitions Portal prior to the application deadline. Applicants will submit the names and email addresses of referees via the portal. This submission will generate notifications and instructions for the referees, allowing them to submit their reference letters electronically. Applicants will receive a notification email when a referee has completed a reference. Applicants may also log into the system at any time to see if a reference letter has been submitted.
Applicants should submit the names of their references well before the application deadline to allow sufficient time for the preparation and submission of the letters. References will not be allowed to submit letters after the application deadline has passed.
No extraneous materials will be considered.
The criteria for selection is determined by each community partner, and is dependent upon the particular work required during the internship period.
Community partners review applications and select candidates for interview, in consultation with the Hall Center Director.
Applicants should direct all questions about the Humanities Summer Graduate Internship Competition to Hall Center Director Victor Bailey (4-7822; firstname.lastname@example.org) or Interim Associate Director Sally Utech (4-7823; email@example.com)
