Gaining Hands-On Experience and Financing Education with the CLFSA Scholarship and Junior Fellows Program

Are you looking to gain more hands-on experience in your field of study or finance your higher education? The CLFSA scholarship is a great opportunity for students to do just that. Every semester, the online scholarship forms are published and must be sent to the specified address. The Library of Congress' Junior Fellows Program is a flagship initiative that has been made possible by generous donations from Nancy Glanville Jewell, the late James Madison Council member, through the Glanville Family Foundation and the Knowledge Navigators Trust Fund, as well as an investment from the Mellon Foundation. The Asia and Middle East Division (ASME) is currently looking for a junior fellow to help process the donation of 1,962 monographs and serial publications that were published in Armenia and in the Diaspora.

The EDEL 315, 325, and 433 courses provide students with the fundamentals of education, educational equity, diversity, cultural and linguistic responsiveness, human development, and basic preparation for teaching reading in the language arts in the elementary classroom. Additionally, interns who teach in kindergarten or from grades one to six inclusive will receive additional teaching during their first semester of service on child development and teaching methods, as well as special education programs for students with mild and moderate disabilities. The junior fellow will work under the guidance of a project mentor and in collaboration with RBSCD staff to help process and promote archival material that will allow the public to reach a deeper understanding of the cultural record of American artistic practice over the past century. After selecting relevant materials from the library's collections, they will present sets of primary sources, hold online debates, and involve educators and representatives of the Network of Teaching Teachers with Primary Sources (TPS) (an online consortium with 13,000 members).

Furthermore, this internship will explore artist archives to increase visibility and discoverability for researchers, educators, and students interested in the art of printing and book production in the 20th and 21st centuries. The CLFSA scholarship and Junior Fellows Program are great opportunities for students to gain more hands-on experience in their field of study while also financing their higher education. With these initiatives, students can learn more about educational equity, diversity, cultural responsiveness, human development, special education programs for students with disabilities, archival material processing, primary source presentation, online debates involving educators, artist archives exploration, and more. If you are interested in taking advantage of these opportunities to gain more knowledge while also financing your higher education journey, make sure to keep an eye out for when the online scholarship forms are published each semester. Additionally, keep an eye out for any job postings from the Library of Congress' Junior Fellows Program.
