Fellowships, Atkins Library, UNC Charlotte, Charlotte, NC

Atkins Library at UNC Charlotte is accepting applications for our Atkins Fellows summer program. Applications submitted by Friday, February 2 will receive first consideration. These fellowships are designed to give LIS students hands-on experience in an academic library.

The Atkins Fellows program is an eleven-week paid summer fellowship for students at the mid-point of their Library, Archives, or Information Science degree program.  Upcoming and recent graduates are also welcome to apply. The program is designed to provide fellows with a work experience that is focused on professional-level tasks, with high levels of independence and creativity. The five projects proposed for 2018 are in the areas of Archival Collection Management Systems, Assessment and Analytics, Global Engagement, Technology and Digital Media, and Born-Digital University Archives. Fellows will also have the opportunity to attend workshops, job talks, and local conferences, as well as job shadow and participate in library meetings.  Participants in this program will receive a $6,600 stipend, paid at an hourly rate ($15/hour, for eleven weeks of forty hours per week).
