Sequoyah National Research Center Offering 3 Summer Internships for Native Students

Part of Sequoyah National Research CollectionApplications are due March 15, 2014

LITTLE ROCK, ALAMABA — Each summer the Sequoyah National Research Center (SNRC), based at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, hosts three tribally affiliated student interns from June 1 – July 31.

The SNRC at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR) houses the papers and special collections of tribal individuals and organizations, the world’s largest archival collection of newspapers and other periodicals published by tribal individuals and organizations, and the Dr. J. W. Wiggins Collection of Native American Art, consisting of more than 2,500 artworks.

The collections of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock’s Sequoyah National Research Center constitute the largest assemblage of Native American expression in the world. Our mission, to acquire and preserve the writings and ideas of Native North Americans, is accomplished through collecting the written word and art of Native Americans and creating a research atmosphere that invites indigenous peoples to make the Center an archival home for their creative work.

To qualify for an internship, students must:

  • Be tribally affiliated
  • Have completed at least 60 college hours
  • Be in good standing at their home institutions of higher learning

The Center will provide on-campus housing and $2,000 to defray other living expenses. Students interested in applying for internships for June 2 – July 31 should send applications or inquiries by email to Daniel F. Littlefield at dflittlefiel@ualr.edu, Robert E. Sanderson atresanderson@ualr.edu
