PLA's Inclusive Internship Initiative

Deadline: February 3, 2020

Want to mentor a paid high school intern at your library? The Public Library Association’s Inclusive Internship Initiative (III) will sponsor 50 paid, summer internships for high school junior and senior students at their local public library as a pathway program to increase diversity in public librarianship. Students from diverse backgrounds are recruited to be interns and introduced to careers in librarianship. Over the summer, each intern works with a library mentor on a community-based learning project. Library mentors practice leadership skills, and host libraries grow new audiences through outreach and programming. Grant funds will include an intern's stipend of $3,500 and travel, hotel, and meal expenses for interns and mentors at two events: a June kick-off in Chicago and a closing event in Washington, DC in late September. 

For more information and to apply to be a host library, visit the website: FAQs available.
