European Church History Internships

Spring: 1 May–20 June 2023
Spring–Summer: 1 May–24 July 2023

Application Deadline: 1 February 2023


The history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Europe is rich and vibrant. From the stories of the earliest converts of the British Isles in the 1830s to the experiences of Latter-day Saints where the Church is still only emerging, European Church history offers examples of faith, perseverance, and inspiration. The Church History Department in Europe invites students to help collect, preserve, and share this history through a mentored internship experience. This learning experience is intended for students with an interest in history, language, writing, and related fields but is open to students of any major. Participants can expect an experience customized to fit their interests and develop their skills. Church history activities in Europe are led from the Church’s offices in Frankfurt, Germany, but extend to every nation.
