Grant Information

The WNYLRC Diversity Internship Grant Program was developed to attract future librarians who reflect the diversity of our communities. WNYLRC believes that diversity should be represented in the staff at our member institutions to reflect the communities in which they serve. To help our members, the WNYLRC Diversity Internship Grant Program was developed. This initiative meets several goals that support diversity, equity, and inclusion in WNYLRC’s 5-year Plan of Service.

Through the WNYLRC Diversity Internship Grant Program initiative, WNYLRC will fund grants to member libraries and cultural organizations to support a paid internship. The goal of the internship is to support a candidate from a diverse population who demonstrates an interest in pursuing a career in library or information studies. The internship will be a minimum of 100 hours with a maximum of 250 hours, at an hourly rate set between WNYLRC and the member. The program is intended to give the candidate a high level of experience in the library field.
