Paid internship opportunities for college students

Interested in Video Production or Personal Genomics? Do you have an aptitude for utilizing the latest technology to accomplish tasks?

Video editing skills are in great demand and we can help you get them. We are seeking technically capable students to make short movies at our Heritage Center in Spring Grove, MN–about 20 minutes drive from Luther College. Workers are needed to collect and edit oral histories videos. Video histories may include WWII and Korean War veteran stories; interviews with Luther professors, one room schoolhouses; testing of Native American genomes for the presence of pre-Columbian European DNA; the concept of heresy within the Lutheran church; the impact of American immigration on Lutheran religious doctrine; or heritage-related topics chosen by the interns.

Interns will begin capturing video with high definition video cameras, mikes, lighting immediately. They will then process that video using Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 or Final Cut Pro and will become proficient within the first week of intership with this software. The intern will then produce two to four oral history videos over the course of January which will be the basis of their evaluation and grade.

Compensation ($7/hour) currently available for video editors. Future, better paid openings will be available as we expand.

Please email Dr. John Storlie ( or to learn how you can get involved with preserving Spring Grove and Decorah area heritage.

Familiarity with video editing, scanning photos, digital photography, basic genetics, and local history are helpful but not required. An ability to use a computer and to quickly learn new technology is required.
