Summer 2020 Internships: National Geographic Society

Posted: February 6, 2020 by saacua in Jobs, News

Are you looking for a paid summer internship? Consider the National Geographic Society’s Library & Archives, where you can gain valuable work experience, learn how a small, non-profit special library and archives operate, and get a look behind the scenes at one of the world’s most respected and recognized organizations.

The Library & Archives maintain and preserve collections—electronic resources, books, periodicals, photos, film, maps, manuscripts, and rare books—used to support research, encourage discovery, and promote awareness of the Society’s contributions to science, exploration, cartography, photography, film-making, publishing, and geography education. We primarily serve National Geographic staff, but we also work with grantees, outside scholars, the educational community, and others.

We are offering two paid summer internships for 2020:

Both internships run June 1 – Aug. 7 for 40 hours per week. The deadline to apply is March 13, 2020, and offers will go out by April 10. All internships will take place in our downtown Washington, DC headquarters. Please contact library@ngs.org with questions.

The National Geographic Society is a nonprofit scientific and educational organization that pushes the boundaries of exploration to further our understanding of our planet and empower us all to generate solutions for a more sustainable future.
