Funding: ARLIS/NA Wolfgang M. Freitag Internship Award
Deadline: Applications due December 9
If you’re interested in art or architecture librarianship or visual resources curatorship and looking for financial support for an internship, consider applying for this award! This award is a grant of $3,000 to support a 150-hour internship in an art or architecture related setting such as a library, archive, or visual resources collection.
Who May Apply
This internship aims to represent the multifaceted nature of our field by providing internship opportunities to students currently enrolled in, or having completed within the last 12 months, a graduate program in library science, art history, architectural history, architecture, studio art, or museum studies.
One Wolfgang M. Freitag Internship is awarded per year. Once an award recipient has been selected, he or she will select an institution to act as host for the internship. This institution must be approved by the ARLIS/NA Wolfgang M. Freitag Internship Award Subcommittee. ARLIS/NA is not responsible for matching candidates with a host institution, but will gladly assist with the process (see Host Institutions.). The award cannot be used for an internship that is already in progress.
This Internship Award will be granted during 2020. The intern is required to work on site at their chosen host institution for a minimum of 150 hours. In all cases the internship must be completed within twelve months of the recipient being notified of the award.
The intern will write a brief report of the internship experience at the conclusion of the internship.
The Wolfgang M. Freitag Internship Award will provide a stipend of $3,000.00 to the intern. Half of the award will be granted prior to the internship, with the remainder granted upon completion of the internship and receipt of a letter to the Chair of the Internship Award Subcommittee signed by the Internship supervisor and intern stating the 150 hours have been completed. The award recipient will also receive a one-year membership in ARLIS/NA at the student level. Interns may have the option of receiving academic credit for the internship as part of graduate study, but will be responsible for making those arrangements.
- December 9, 2019: Deadline for submission of applications to the Student Advancement Awards Subcommittee.
- January 10, 2020: Applicants notified of award results.
Deadline for submission of evaluation forms and documents by intern and host institution will be within 30 days of the completion of the internship.
