The Library of Congress is seeking applicants for its 2019 Junior Fellows Summer Intern Program. This is a 10-week paid ($4,500 to $4,500 student stipend) fellowship for undergraduate and graduate students interested in learning more about the work done at the largest library in the world.

From exploring new ways to support digital scholars, developing new preservation techniques and curating historical materials to making veterans histories more accessible, the 2019 Junior Fellows will work on a wide range of special projects under the mentorship of Library staff from May 28 through Aug. 2, 2019.

Junior Fellows will have the opportunity to explore a broad spectrum of library operations, including: public engagement, educational outreach, digital communications, collection processing, preservation, standards-setting, copyright and information management. Junior Fellows will also be encouraged to participate in professional development opportunities designed to enhance their summer experiences including special tours, lectures and forums.
