The following are funds associated with the History Department:
FIU is partnering with the Historic Hampton House on a two year project which offers graduate students and undergraduates a chance to gain real world skills, serve the community, earn internship credit, and produce a historical exhibit.
During the segregation era, the Hampton House was the premier hotel for African Americans visiting Miami. Unable to stay at the fancy hotels on Miami Beach, where they often performed, great American musicians stayed at the Hampton House during their time in Miami: Sam Cooke, Aretha Franklin, Dizzy Gillespie, and other jazz, blues and soul performers.
We are looking for two to three undergraduates and graduate students for internships and class credit, starting this summer and continuing through next year.
For undergraduates and graduate students not on funding, there are also stipends available.
For more information, please contact Prof. Ken Lipartito at email@example.com.
The FIU Department of History is pleased to announce the Volume 1, Issue 2 of Yesterday Today, the FIU history department's newsletter, is now available.
You can read Issue 1 of Yesterday Today here.
