Current university students and recent graduates are invited to apply for an academic internship in the US. Both US and foreign citizens are eligible to apply. The programme will award a grant of $4,000 to interns placed in libraries, museums, visual resources collections, and other institutions.
The Visual Resources Association Foundation (VRAF) Internship Award provides financial support for graduate students preparing for a career in visual resources and image management.
The award grants $4,000 to support a period of internship in archives, libraries, museums, visual resources collections in academic institutions, or other appropriate contexts.
Priority is given to applicants who submit projects that support art historical or related visual cultural heritage research and scholarship.
Although the award recipient need not hold US citizenship or be a permanent resident of the US, the recipient must select an institution in the United States to act as host for the internship.
The intern is required to work on site at their chosen host institution for a minimum of 200 hours. The intern will choose to initiate their internship in the fall, winter, or spring.
The VRAF Internship Award will provide a stipend of $3,000 to the intern. Half of the award will be granted prior to the internship, with the remainder granted upon completion of the internship.
A professional development component of $1,000 is available to support attendance at the annual VRA conference, other appropriate conferences, or the summer educational institute for visual resources and image management.
The deadline is on Friday 23rd July 2021.
Students currently enrolled in, or having completed within the last 24 months, a graduate programme in library or information science, art history, architectural history, architecture, visual or studio art, museum studies, or other applicable field of study may apply for this award.
Applicants must have completed at least ten credits of their graduate coursework before the application deadline.
