Maryland State Archives Summer Internships

High school, undergraduate or graduate level college students attending Maryland schools or Maryland residents attending out-of-state schools are eligible to apply for summer internships through the Maryland State Archives. The competitive selection process is based on an evaluation of the following application materials:

- Cover letter
- Maryland State Employment Application Form (MS 100)
- Academic transcripts (unofficial copies are accepted)
- A letter of recommendation from a faculty member
- A sample of the applicant's academic writing
- Completed Skills Assessment

During the ten-week paid summer program, interns will engage in a variety of activities related to processing, managing, and interpreting archival collections. Individual intern assignments will vary, but duties may include electronic imaging, scanning, image processing, computer programming, record stripping, accessioning, web design, research, or writing. The intern program includes a heavy focus on the application of computer technology to both the historical method and archival practice. Some assignments may require regular off-site work. Interns will receive an hourly wage, paid bi-weekly. Hourly rates are based on education level - high school at $8.70 per hour, undergraduate at $10.63 per hour, and graduate at $11.25 per hour.
