Library of Congress 2024 Junior Fellows Program

The Library of Congress Junior Fellows Program is a paid, 10-week annual summer internship program that enables undergraduate, graduate students, and recent graduates to experience the integrated analog and digital collections and services of the world's largest, all-inclusive library.
Working under the direction of Library curators and specialists in various divisions, Junior Fellows explore digital initiatives and increase access to the institution’s unparalleled collections and resources. Junior Fellows are exposed to a broad spectrum of library work, including: copyright, preservation, reference, access, and information technology.
In the past, Junior Fellows have identified hundreds of historical, literary, artistic, cinematic and musical gems representing the Library’s rich cultural, creative and intellectual assets. No previous experience is necessary, but fellowships are competitive and special skills or knowledge are usually desired. Selections are based on narrative responses to vacancy announcement questions, reference calls, and an interview with a selection official.
The Junior Fellows Program, a signature initiative of the Library of Congress since 1991, is made possible by a gift from the late James Madison Council member Nancy Glanville Jewell through the Glanville Family Foundation and the Knowledge Navigators Trust Fund and by an investment from the Mellon Foundation.
Must be currently enrolled at time of application at the undergraduate or graduate level, AND/OR have graduated or will graduate between January 1, 2023 and December 31, 2023.
