Future Information Professionals Internship for Undergraduate Students
Description of Program
ODU undergraduate students who are interested in careers in library and information studies were invited to apply for the Future Information Professionals Internship program for the 2022-2023 academic year. Twelve students were selected for internships this year. The internship pays $4000, distributed across the academic year. During the fall semester our interns will learn about the profession by attending the Virginia Library Association Conference, visiting a local library, and attending an informational session to learn more about working in libraries. They will be paired with a coach who is a current ODU graduate student who will support you throughout the year. In the spring semester they will work 10 hours per week in the ODU Libraries, focusing on a project of their choosing. Interns will be provided with training to develop an ePortfolio to showcase your project. This project prioritizes BIPOC (black, indigenous, and people of color) students and students who are members of other marginalized groups.
You must be committed to participating in:
$1000 will be paid during the fall semester split across two payments
$3000 will be paid during the spring semester split across four payments
