Graduate Internships

Archives & Special Collections supports an annual summer internship program for UConn graduate students for which interns receive a stipend*. Internship appointments are full time positions (approximately 35 hours/week) for ten weeks. Interns will work on projects chosen by Archives & Special Collections' staff in accordance with established processing priorities. Although the staff will attempt to assign projects within an intern's area of interest, assignments are not guaranteed. Intern projects will usually involve increasing access to collections through the arrangement and description of collections using accepted archival practices and techniques. Interns can expect to acquire significant knowledge about Archives & Special Collections and its holdings, archival practices and their practical application to primary source materials.

*Please Note: The stipend is gross income. All taxes and other withholdings will affect the actual stipend, dependent upon interns' tax status at the time of employment.

The submission deadline for graduate applications is the second Friday in April, with an announcement date of early May.

The Graduate Internship application is available here.
