Folger Shakespeare Library

          Many divisions of the Folger have opportunities for internships, both paid and unpaid, for undergraduate and graduate students to learn about the daily operations of an independent research library with a vigorous set of cultural and educational programs. Internships are available with the following divisions: Central Library, Development, Education, Research, and Public Programs.

          Eligibility for Central Library internships is limited to graduate students pursuing a master’s degree in Library Science or Museum Studies.  For all other internships, preference is given to students pursuing academic and professional goals in the arts and/or humanities.  While the majority of these internships are unpaid, this decision is left to each division’s discretion.   

          The Division of Research sponsors seminars, conferences, and workshops involving the Renaissance period for doctoral and postdoctoral level scholars, and produces Shakespeare Quarterly

          The Division of Public Programs produces events for the general public, including theatre productions, literary readings, concerts, and tours.

          The Folger Education office offers unpaid internships for college or graduate students interested in museum education, visitor services, and Shakespeare.  Days and hours are flexible.

          The Development office is responsible for raising unrestricted and restricted gift income in support of organizational needs from individuals, corporations, foundations, and government agencies.

          Potential interns, screened on an individual basis, should send a resumé, cover letter, and a letter from their institution's internship office stating the requirements for credit (if it is to be requested). Letters of recommendation may be solicited after a preliminary screening. Mail or fax internship inquiries to Folger Shakespeare Library Attn: HR/Interns; or e-mail to jobs@folger.edu
