In 2008–2010, MIAP has limited funding for students in the form of internship stipends from sources such as the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS). Funded internships during the academic year must take place in New York City. Summer internships must take place outside of New York City, but within the United States. In both cases, students must select a new internship site each semester. No internship sites may be repeated. Students who are recipients of these stipends may have to complete and submit additional assignments.
These requirements are described in detail below under Additional Requirements for recipients of MIAP sponsored internship awards.
All students will be required to provide a short, factual summary of their internship to post online, and they are required to submit at least two photos of themselves engaged in preservation/archival activities.
During the internship selection process for fall and spring semesters, students who have received a MIAP Sponsored Internship Award will choose from a list of designated internship opportunities. After MIAP has assigned the student to a particular internship, the student will be responsible for setting up the internship schedule and making other internship arrangements with his/her supervisor.
In addition to participation in the MIAP course MIAP INTERNSHIP WORKSHOP, recipients of MIAP Sponsored Internship Awards are required to complete additional assignments, which will vary according to the internship's funding source.
The particular funding source associated with each internship opportunity will be indicated by the following abbreviations (including additional requirements):
