South Carolina Political Collections at the University of South Carolina invites applications for its annual Schuyler L. and Yvonne Moore Endowed Summer Internship, a paid position for graduate students enrolled in an archival education program outside South Carolina. The Moore Internship provides a $2600 stipend and a valuable experience at a leading congressional repository. Projects require a minimum of 135 hours and vary depending on SCPC needs and the interests of the intern. Typical internships may include arranging and describing a collection or a series within a major collection, creating an exhibit, completing a digitization project, or transcribing oral history interviews. The internship is funded by the Schuyler L. and Yvonne Moore Endowment. Housing is not provided as part of the award and must be arranged by the candidate. Interns may process papers, create an exhibit, or work on a digitization project. SCPC will try to match the project with the interests of the intern.
The application deadline is May 1. Applications should include:
- Statement not exceeding 500 words explaining how an internship with SCPC fits the applicant’s educational program and career goals
- Current résumé
- Letter of recommendation from the head of the archival program in which the applicant is enrolled. It should state the program’s internship requirements, including the number of hours required to complete the internship.
