Project Description

You will work directly with American and Czech employees at United States Embassy Prague on one of two projects to research historical links between the U.S. and the Czech Republic. For the first project, we would like the selected intern to research cultural landmarks, institutions, statues and monuments throughout the United States related to the U.S. Czech relationship. We would like the intern to list the landmarks by city and state and include background and photos. The intern will design a map with locations indicated. For the second project, we would like the selected intern to research business and trade links between the U.S. and the Czech Republic from 1918 to today. The goal would be to create a timeline highlighting events of significance in the U.S.-Czech business and trade relationship. Inclusion of photographs, historical information and interesting facts would be part of this project. Creation of a map of locations would be of interest.
