Award-Winning Graduate Students of Spring 2013

Three graduate students have received Internship Completion Awards for the fall semester:  Kimberly Coulter, who interned with the Remer & Talbott consulting firm; Kathleen Leonard, who interned at the Please Touch Museum; and Benjamin Thompson, who interned at the Urban Archives, Temple University, and The Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia. These awards of up to $500 are given to students who complete public history internships successfully with a grade of A or B and whose costs of tuition exceeded their compensation for the internships. The funds were donated to the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities (MARCH) to honor the retirement of Howard Gillette, who requested that they be used to support graduate training in public history.
