Internship Application

Submitted by ichoyle on

Internships at the State Archives of North Carolina provide opportunities to high school, undergraduate, and graduate students to become familiar with the inner workings of archives. Through this partnership interns can receive practical experiences to help clarify and further career goals. These internships are for experience and are not paid positions. Internships are open to high school students, college undergraduates, graduate students, and recent graduates. Eligibility varies for each internship term. The internship, even though it includes actual operation of the facilities of the employer, is similar to training which would be given in an educational environment. If you need course credit for your internship work, please discuss that with the internship coordinator before beginning your internship.
