Hispanic Division Internship Programs

The Hispanic Division offers a limited number of bi-annual volunteer and paid Huntington Internships. This program gives interns the opportunities to learn about research and creativity from the Caribbean, Latin America, Portugal, Spain, and Latinx communities in the United States. Here is what some recent interns have to say about their internships:

Hispanic Division Huntington Volunteer Internship Program - (unpaid)

The volunteer internships carry no stipend; but past-interns find them useful for career planning and for research, library, and professional experience.

Hispanic Division Huntington Paid Fellowship Program - ( approx. $ 2,000/full time and 1000/mo part time)

These part (20hrs X 34 wks) or full time paid internships (40hrs X 17 wks) offer interns an introduction to work in digital archiving, metadata creation, or developing educational tools for accessing library resources. Interns work with librarians to learn about Spanish and/or Portuguese-language collections and services; and they contribute to online products used guiding research.  The applicants may have knowledge of Library Science and/or Caribbean, Latin American, Iberian, or LatinX Studies. A working knowledge of Spanish or Portuguese is essential.
