Visual Resources Association Foundation (VRAF) is pleased to invite applications for the eighth
VRAF Internship Award in visual resources and image management. This internship is generously funded by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation.
The VRAF Internship Award provides financial support for graduate students and recent graduates preparing for a career in visual resources and image management. The award grants $3,000 to support a period of internship
in archives, libraries, museums, visual resources collections in academic institutions, or other appropriate contexts. It also provides $1,000 for professional development, and a one-year complimentary student membership in the
Visual Resources Association.
Candidates should apply after developing a project with a specific collection and prospective supervisor. Priority will be given to applicants who submit projects that support art historical or related visual
cultural heritage research and scholarship. The VRAF Internship Award Committee favors opportunities in which the intern may integrate skills acquired during the course of his or her academic training to manage a project from beginning to end, with the host
institution receiving needed help in making valuable but hidden cultural collections visible. Projects that would not occur without funding for an intern may be given special consideration. A complete description of the internship and application instructions
are available at:
In this unpredictable and unfamiliar time of COVID-19, it is clear that remote work and research are dependent upon online collections. VRAF believes that there are many learning opportunities for interns to help
provide scholarly and public access to collections by working remotely if needed in the 2020-2021 academic year.
Applications are due on July 24, 2020. The award recipient for 2020-2021 will be announced on August 17, 2020.
Please forward this announcement to anyone who might be interested.
