Greetings all, 

I’m writing in regards to the Visual Resources Association (VRA) Foundation Internships in visual resources and image management. The VRAF is seeking host sites for the internship; if you are interested in hosting an intern at no cost to your institution, please read the information below.

This is our sixth internship and we are very grateful to the Samuel H. Kress Foundation for so generously supporting this opportunity. 

The award grants $3,000 to support an internship in archives, libraries, museums, visual resources collections, or other appropriate settings. It also provides a professional development account of $1,000 to be used for attending conferences, including the VRA Annual Conference and/or Summer Educational Institute for Visual Resources and Image Management (SEI). 

The student will provide 200 hours of service over the course of their internship. In order to be eligible for the internship, the student must have completed at least ten credits of graduate coursework in Library/Information Science, Art History, Architecture or Architectural History, Visual or Studio Art, Museum Studies, or other applicable fields of study. 

Although this internship is available to non-US residents, the work must take place at an institution within the USA. While Canadian institutions are not eligible to host a VRAF intern, such internships might be of interest to any number of people who are seeking VR-related internships and can be included in our list of available opportunities. 

If you and your institution are interested in hosting a student during the Fall, Winter, or Spring of the 2018-2019 academic year, please email me the following information by Monday, May 28, 2018.

With this information, a list of potential internship sites will be compiled and added to the VREPS (Visual Resources Emerging Professionals and Students) website to help student applicants find an internship in their geographical area. 

We are excited that the VRA Foundation was able to provide the internship again this year and hope that you will consider being a host site for this wonderful opportunity for students just starting out in the fields of visual resources and image management. 

More information about the internship can be found here: http://vrafoundation.org.s119319.gridserver.com/index.php/grants/internship_award/ (in the process of being updated) 

Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions.
