SNRC accepting Native American Student Internship Program applications through March 15

February 13th, 2015 All Day - March 15th, 2015

The Sequoyah National Research Center (SNRC) will host three Native students June 1-July 31, 2015, where interns work at least 25 hours per week in the center doing archival and research work.

The SNRC at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR) houses the papers and special collections of tribal individuals and organizations, the world's largest archival collection of newspapers and other periodicals published by tribal individuals and organizations, and the Dr. J. W. Wiggins Collection of Native American Art, consisting of more than 2,500 artworks.

The goal of the Native American Student Internship Program is to provide students an experiential learning environment in which to acquire an understanding of the value of archives and the research potential of the collections of the Center and to engage in academic research and practical archival activities related to tribal culture, society, and issues. Interns are expected to demonstrate the value of their experience by either a summary report of work, finding aids for collections, or reports of research or other written work that may be shared with their home institutions.

Applicants should send applications or inquiries by e-mail to Daniel F. Littlefield at  [email protected], Robert E. Sanderson at [email protected], or Erin H. Fehr at [email protected]or by mail to Sequoyah National Research Center, 2801 S. University Avenue, Little Rock, AR 72204. Applications are due by March 15, 2015.
