  • Scholarship Description
  • The Franklin D. Roosevelt Library and the Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Institute (FERI) offer Roosevelt Archival Internships to college and graduate level students. Preference may be given to students majoring in history, political science, archival, library, or computer/information science. Research skills, basic computer skills, familiarity with the Internet, and knowledge of Windows, Word Perfect, and Access database software are particularly valuable. Some familiarity with the history of the Franklin D. Roosevelt presidency (1933-1945) is helpful.

    Roosevelt interns work at the FDR Library as part of a team of other interns and staff professionals to organize and automate archival materials, make indices, finding aids, and databases, digitize documents and photographs, and assist with other archival and museum projects. The work schedule is Monday-Friday, 9:00-5:00 PM.

    Internships can last six or seven weeks, and must take place during the summer break (mid-May through the end of August). The FDR Library is in Hyde Park, New York, a rural/suburban town 80 miles north of New York City. There may be an opportunity for one or two interns to work on the New Deal Network Web site project in New York City.

    Interns receive a stipend of $1,200-1,400 ($200 per week). The internships are funded by the William R. Emerson Archival Internship Fund and by the FDRL/FERI Roosevelt Internship Program, both of which are managed by FERI.
