Henry Ford was one of the most ingenious men to grace our country’s history. “Fordism,” his philosophy of bringing inexpensive automobiles to the masses through cost cutting and the assembly line has truly changed the face of world history. It’s amazing to think that ideas that we now take for granted were so revolutionary back then. You can find plenty more on Henry Ford on Wikipedia, but what about The Henry Ford. It’s kind of an odd name for what it is, but it’s a place in Dearborn, MI that includes historic Greenfield Village, the Henry Ford Museum, the Ford Rouge Factory Tour, the Benson Ford Research Center, and The Henry Ford IMAX Theater. It’s something between a museum and an educational center. It’s a non-profit organization, but that doesn’t really tell us much about what it is. I guess that’s why they call it The Henry Ford.

The Internships

The Henry Ford may sound like a fun place to go on a field trip, but it’s also a place where some serious research gets done. Unlike many museums that have their interns work on the operations, membership, or development side, The Henry Ford’s internships seem to center around research and history. They have a Historical Resources Internship Program for undergraduates and graduates, a Clark Travel-to-Collections Research Grant Program that supports “research using the automotive history collections of The Henry Ford,” and a Simmons Graduate Internship Program for “graduate students pursuing careers in museums, historical agencies, conservation labs or related fields.” The application instructions vary depending on the internship, but they have Summer opportunities available with a March application deadline. The internship descriptions are pretty in-depth, so check out The Henry Ford’s Internships page for all of the details.
