New deadline for applications! March 1, 2018 

The Russian Department, in close collaboration with Wellesley Career Education, is continuing its new internship program. These are 10-week internships in Russia that come with a $4,000 stipend. There will be an opening at the Donors’ Forum in Moscow, at the Carnegie Center in Moscow and the Andrei Bely Memorial Apartment Museum (see below).

Announcing a new Summer Internship at the Andrei Bely Memorial Apartment, Filial of the State Pushkin Museum!

The Wellesley College Russian Department is pleased to call for applications from students wishing to spend 10 weeks next summer, interning for the Andrei Bely Memorial Apartment. The Andrei Bely Memorial Apartment is a unique and prestigious museum, archive and research institution located on the Arbat, in the center of Moscow. The successful applicant should have advanced proficiency in Russian, a love of Russian literature and a flair for literary research. Her duties at the Andrei Bely Memorial Apartment will include managing database and social media accounts; researching, translating, and publishing materials Andrei Bely Memorial Apartment website; leading tours of the Andrei Bely Memorial Apartment.

All internships prefer candidates with advanced Russian skills, so a successful applicant should do her best to take Russian 301 and 302 or the equivalent before her internship begins. You may apply for more than one internship. In some cases it is possible to accept a student who has just graduated (i.e. a 2017 alum might be chosen for the summer of 2018), but such a case would be an exception.

"I had the most positive experience possible at the Russian Donors Forum... The office is an all-female environment, and although everyone is always busy with work there is a lot of communication (and laughter) in the office... Each person with whom I worked took it upon themselves to make sure my time in Moscow was as easy and enjoyable as possible... I would highly recommend this internship to any ‘Russianist’ with an interest in philanthropy or non-profits."
