WE PARTNER WITH UNIVERSITIES
Internships at ALPHA provide students with an immersive experience in education, research and community outreach work. Our internship curriculum is thoughtfully designed to develop interns’ practical work skills such as research, writing, public speaking and facilitation, while also honing students’ faculties in critical thinking and historical analysis, and deepening their understanding of World War II history in Asia. Each intern works with an experienced mentor, participates in discussions and workshops, and works on independent projects.
Overseas internships in collaboration with partner organizations such as the International Human Rights Program (IHRP) and the Harbin Museum and Research Centre provide students with support and opportunities for developing and conducting independent research.
Due to ongoing travel restrictions, all Summer Internships are currently being conducted online.
Our Online Summer Seminar is currently accepting applications. Click here for more information.

Featured Student Work
Title: The “Comfort Women Issue” Paths to Justice and Reconciliation
Digital Archive Project – Primary Source Collection, Vol. 1 (1) (2018)
This resource pulls together a collection of testimonial, documentary, photographic and film primary sources that document the Japanese system of Military Sexual Slavery, which was carried out across the Asia-Pacific by the occupying Japanese forces during the Second World War. Lee Jae Sun, our intern from Hong Kong University (Summer 2018) helped to develop this resource with educators as well as student researchers in mind. The resource is ideal for researchers who want a basic introduction to the issue but it is also a handy instructional material for educators who want to make use of primary sources in the classroom.
