Internship Description
Only one Wolfgang M. Freitag Internship is awarded per year. Once an award recipient has been selected, he or she will select an institution to act as host for the internship. This institution must be approved by the ARLIS/NA Wolfgang M. Freitag Internship Award Sub-Committee. ARLIS/NA is not responsible for matching candidates with a host institution, but will gladly assist with the process.

This Internship Award will be granted during 2014. The intern is required to work on site at their chosen host institution for a minimum of 150 hours. The intern will choose to initiate their internship in the Spring, Summer or Fall of 2014. The internship must begin within 30 days of the official beginning of the selected academic session of the participant's home institution and be completed within one academic semester or two academic quarters. Exceptions allowed by agreement between the selected intern and the ARLIS/NA Internship Award Sub-Committee. In all cases the internship must be completed within twelve months of the recipient being notified of the award.

The intern and the internship supervisor will complete brief evaluations of the internship experience.

The Wolfgang M. Freitag Internship Award will provide a stipend of $2,500.00 to the intern. Half of the award will be granted prior to the internship, with the remainder granted upon completion of the internship and receipt of a letter to the Chair of the Internship Award Sub-Committee signed by the Internship supervisor and intern stating the 150 hours have been completed. The award recipient will also receive a one year membership in ARLIS/NA at the student level. Interns may have the option of receiving academic credit for the internship as part of graduate study, but will be responsible for making those arrangements.
