The Citi Center for Culture and Queens Public Library would like to extend an invitation to apply for a two-semester fellowship taking place any two of the semesters from Fall 2022 through Spring 2023. Applicants must be currently enrolled students in the Division of Library and Information Science who are committed to specializing in the Archives Librarianship. Fellows will each receive a $2000 scholarship from the Citi Center for Culture at the conclusion of the fellowship in the summer of 2023.
To enhance the professional prospects of our Fellows, we have developed a program that provides them the opportunity to diversify their exposure to collection management and use of archival collections. The Fellowship consists of semester-long rotations at each of our two institutions. Fellows will also engage as a team in a year-long needs assessment and recommendations project for a cultural heritage organization. We believe that the diversity of scope, mission, and collections managed by our respective institutions will serve to broaden the skills and enhance the profile of the students we select to participate.
