Fellowship for Digital and Inclusive Excellence
Calling undergrads! Curious about digital work in academic libraries? Don’t miss out on the chance to apply for this grant-funded program. The deadline is April 12th.
The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) is accepting applications for the 2018–2019 Fellowship for Digital and Inclusive Excellence, a program designed to introduce undergraduate students from historically underrepresented ethnic and racial groups to the library and information science discipline. The program offers a paid internship with a focus on digital stewardship in a partner ARL library or archive, participation in the ARL Annual Leadership Symposium, formal mentorship, financial support for student membership in a professional organization, and attendance at a capstone institute. Participants will develop leadership skills and will receive training in topics related to diversity, equity, and social justice.
