Summer Internship Program

Summer Internship Program

The Pro Football Hall of Fame, located in Canton, Ohio, the birthplace of the National Football League, is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization with the Mission to “Honor the Heroes of the Game, Preserve its History, Promote its Values & Celebrate Excellence EVERYWHERE.”

The Pro Football Hall of Fame Summer Internship Program provides a meaningful and educational, hands-on experience in a variety of disciplines. Interns will have the opportunity to gain real world experience throughout the summer leading up to the annual Enshrinement Week Powered by Johnson Controls. The Summer Internship Program will provide for a unique experience with the enshrinement of two classes – the Centennial Class of 2020 and the Class of 2021.

In addition to departmental work, all interns are required to attend weekly OTAs which includes engagement with the Hall’s Management Team and other industry experts, networking, professional skill development and team building activities.

To be considered for the Summer Internship Program, students must have completed at least their sophomore year and be enrolled in a bachelor's, master's or doctorate degree program at a college or university during the internship or have just graduated in May of the year of their internship. All summer interns will receive a stipend to help offset the cost of living while interning at the Hall of Fame. If an applicant is seeking college credit, the Hall of Fame will work to meet all necessary requirements. Interns must be available for approximately 40 hours per week from June 1-August 11, 2021 with extended hours expected during Enshrinement Week (August 5-9, 2021).

“The relationships that I built here with the staff members and other interns are ones that will last for years to come. Interning here really helped me to shape my career path and find out what I am passionate about.” – Sophia, Archives Intern Summer of 2020


“As an intern we had an Organized Team Activity (OTA) every Wednesday that included guest speakers from the management team, as well as outside guests from the Green Bay Packers and NFL Films. This OTA program sets you up for success by getting to know the other interns and also meeting the staff that makes this place special.” – Marcus, Communications Intern Summer of 2020
