The internship program at the FDR Library is a unique educational experience for students of varied backgrounds and interests. Internship opportunities can include the development of educational programs and materials for students and teachers of all grade levels; computer projects to help streamline the research process; public relations; archival research; the development of exhibits; and a variety of other activities.
Students who have interned at the FDR Library over the past few years have had the opportunity to work with the "raw stuff" of history. They realize and appreciate the rare privilege that is theirs to work with the same materials as have well known historians such as Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., Doris Kearns Goodwin, and Geoffrey Ward. Roosevelt Library interns have gone on either to the work place or to pursue advanced degrees in a variety of fields. Their experience at the Roosevelt Library has broadened their historical perspective, and given them an opportunity to work in the creative process of history, while encouraging them to learn more about Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt.
