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 [log in to unmask].
Applications are welcomed from recent Ph.Ds. and ABDs, particularly in history and closely related fields.
