Digital Humanities Internship Program for MLS Students: Call for Applicants
For the past two years Maryland’s iSchool has been providing a select number of MLS students with an internship opportunity at the Maryland Institute for Technology (MITH) or one of two other prestigious Digital Humanities Centers: Nebraska’s Center for Digital Research in the Humanities and Michigan State’s MATRIX. Funded by a generous grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the internships support students through a combination of Graduate Student Assistantships and summer stipends. After reviewing our budget, we have determined that the University of Maryland is able to support one final UMD iSchool student in Summer 2011 at one of the following digital humanities centers:
• University of Maryland, College Park. Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH). http://mith.umd.edu/
• Michigan State University, Lansing. MATRIX http://www2.matrix.msu.edu/
• University of Nebraska, Lincoln. Center for Digital Research in the Humanities (CDRH) http://cdrh.unl.edu

Depending on circumstances, students may be offered either a residential (on-site) or distance internship. In your email message submitting the application, please rank your preferences for internship location.
