The Library of Congress Young Readers Center introduced a new Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) internship last year; applications for this year’s fall session are now open, and the deadline to apply is Monday, May 20.
The selected intern will receive a stipend that covers transportation to and from Washington, D.C., and offsets the cost of lodging, food, and incidentals.
This is a wonderful opportunity for an undergrad or grad student (or someone who received their degree within the last six months) to get substantive experience connecting the young visitors and their families with the Library’s resources, services, and expertise. The experiences of the two previous TPS Young Readers Center interns demonstrate how valuable these internships are in obtaining employment and admittance into prestigious academic programs.
Follow the link below to find out more about the qualifications, application process, and the intern’s possible experiences. Please share this opportunity with students and colleagues who work with students: https://www.loc.gov/item/internships/young-readers-center-volunteer-internship-program/
