indexThe Library of Congress is proud to announce that it is accepting applications for its competitive 2016 Junior Fellows Summer Intern Program http://www.loc.gov/hr/jrfellows/about.html from now through Friday, January 22, 2016.

The Junior Fellows Program is open to undergraduate and graduate students from any discipline to experience the integrated analog and
digital collections and services of the world’s largest,all-inclusive library.  Working under the direction of Library curators and specialists in various divisions, Fellows explore digital initiatives and increase access to the institution’s unparalleled collections and resources.  Fellows are exposed to a broad spectrum of library work: copyright, preservation, reference, access, and information technology.  Students applicants will rank their top three projects choices from a list of 26 projects.  If selected, students will either work 1:1 with their Project Mentor or be placed on a small team and collaborate with one or two other Junior Fellows in addition to their Project Mentor.

The 2016 Junior Fellows program will take place from May 31, 2016 to August 5, 2016 (fellows must be present for the entirety of the program).  Fellows are paid a $300 weekly, non-taxable stipend during this 10-week program.  The Library’s stipend is meant to defray the cost of housing, food, travel, and other expenses.  The program offers Fellows a transportation subsidy for the duration of
their internship in addition to the Fellows’ regular stipend. Please click here for FAQ: http://www.loc.gov/hr/jrfellows/faq.html
