Summer Diversity Internship for Undergraduate Students

The Washington University Libraries are accepting applications from current Washington University undergraduates for an 8-week (June 3-July 26, 2024) in-person paid internship. The internship is an integral part of the University Libraries’ commitment to inclusion, diversity, equity, and access (IDEA). We are also committed to the national effort to increase diversity in academic librarianship. Please review the University Libraries IDEA statement.

Interns will be introduced to careers in academic librarianship, receive mentoring from librarians, and work on a variety of library projects that promote the Libraries’ unique and diverse collections.

Projects will include:

  • Developing library research guides and other outreach materials
  • Creating displays for the University Libraries or for campus residential areas
  • Developing a research project of personal interest that promotes awareness of the University Libraries’ extensive collections.

To be eligible for the internship, applicants must still be undergraduates in the Fall 2024 semester. This summer internship is not for students graduating in May of 2024.

The 2024 Summer Diversity Undergraduate Internship application deadline is Tuesday, April 30, 2024, at 5:00 pm. A library internship selection committee will interview selected candidates. Please contact Rudolph Clay ( for additional information.
