AMIA Pathways Fellowship Applications Open
The AMIA Pathways Fellowship is a paid internship, professional development, and mentorship program which offers guidance, support, and new pathways in the field of audiovisual archiving and preservation for people from groups historically underrepresented in the profession, at any level of their career. Through the program fellows engage in onsite paid internships, professional development through webinar training, a formal virtual mentorship program, and an alumni program. The AMIA Pathways offers guidance and support through a close-knit community made up of cohort members, Pathways project staff and volunteers, mentors, and more, providing Fellows with the opportunity to develop lasting professional and personal connections throughout the AMIA community.
Applicants can apply for paid internships, which provide professional skill development in a variety of competencies needed to advance in the archival profession, including but not limited to cataloging, hands on inventory work, digital archiving, research and more! Applicants will need to apply to both an internship opportunity (there is no limit to the number you can apply to) and the Pathways Fellowship. Internship applications for organizations will be posted in the coming weeks.
Pathways internships are offered by a broad range of organizations in the field of moving image archives, including regional and community-based organizations, academic institutions, cultural centers, and archival service providers. 2023 host sites include:
