- Internship opportunity: The Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) is currently accepting project proposals for its internship program. METRO will fund interns ($15/hr for 120 hours) for the Spring 2019 semester to work with libraries, archives, museums, or similar organizations or groups on projects that utilize the METRO Studio. We are looking for a range of proposals, such as projects that digitize collections on legacy media, engage and document local communities, or examine new approaches to description and data. For more information: https://metro.org/studio-internship
- Opportunity for Women in STEM:
Perricone MD and The Scientista Foundation have partnered to give away four $20,000 fellowships to four amazing women in STEM. The application consists of recording a 3-5 minute video explaining how they embody the qualities of a born seeker -- drive, curiosity, and perseverance regarding their scientific and personal life. Everyone has a unique story to tell, and we would encourage all female STEM students to apply. The application can be found at www.bornseekersfellowship.com
