Posted By: Daniel Moss on January 18, 2013

The Frank and Peggy Steele Internship Program for Youth Leadership Development provides meaningful, hands-on training in numerous professional careers including research, photo archives, membership, education, curatorial, special events, licensing/sales and public relations. In addition, interns learn and work in the company of baseball's best-known personalities during the annual Hall of Fame Weekend and Induction Ceremony, held in Cooperstown each summer.

To be considered for the Frank and Peggy Steele Internship Program for Youth Leadership Development, students must have completed at least their sophomore year and be enrolled in a bachelor's or master's degree program at a college or university during the internship, or have just graduated in May. All Steele interns receive a bi-weekly stipend during the ten weeks of the program and access to affordable student housing. If fulfilling an academic requirement, college credit may also be awarded.



The Frank & Peggy Steele Internship Program welcomes applicants for the Ozzie Smith Diversity Scholarship.
