INTERNSHIP: Department of the Air Force Palace Acquire Internship

The Department of the Air Force has authorized the Air Force 
Historical Studies Office, Bolling Air Force Base, D.C., to hire a 
Palace Acquire Intern during this fiscal year.

This announcement is a general summary of the Palace Acquire intern 
program, sometimes referred to as the "Outstanding Scholar" program. 
This is a three-year training program to prepare the intern for 
placement in a permanent historian position.  The intern position is 
full-time, even during the training period, and the intern is 
entitled to federal benefits, including annual and sick leave, life 
insurance, and health insurance.

A number of historians employed by the Air Force History and Museums 
Program began their careers as Air Force historians in the Palace 
Acquire intern program.  Entry into civil service is often 
challenging for nonveterans, and the Palace Acquire program provides 
a valuable opportunity for those who cannot otherwise enter 
government employment easily.

Interviews will be held at Georgetown University on Tuesday, January 
19, 2010.  Interested scholars from all accredited universities are 
encouraged to send a cover letter, a resume, unofficial transcripts, 
and a writing sample to Dr. John Q. Smith, Director, Air Force 
Historical Studies Office, Bolling AFB, D.C., via email at 
<mailto:[log in to unmask]>[log in to unmask]

Applications are welcomed from recent Ph.Ds. and ABDs, particularly 
in history and closely related fields.
