DePaul University Special Collections and Archives has partnered with the Black Metropolis Research Consortium (BMRC) to offer a paid summer internship opportunity for a DePaul student. This summer’s internship will be remote, and care has been taken to design an engaging online experience with other interns, the host site’s staff, and BMRC staff and Board members. The internship program is specifically designed for students of color. The stipend is $3,000.
Applications are due March 16, and additional information and instructions are on our website. This opportunity is specifically for students of color (Black/African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian, Hispanic/Latinx, Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander descent, or multi-racial) and is designed to address the issue of underrepresentation of critically needed ethnic archivists within the archives profession.
Jahru McCulley ’20 was the DePaul intern last year; you can watch a 15 minute YouTube video about Jahru’s experiences with the Chicago History Museum and read about past interns and the Archie Motley Archival Internship Program.
