This page contains links to job, internship, scholarship, fellowship, assistantship, grant, and other funding opportunities in history, public history, museums, libraries, and more.

If you’re a Loyola history graduate student who wants access to this list or if you know of a resource that should be added to this page, please email the professional development graduate assistant.
