The Eleanor Roosevelt Papers Project, a documentary editing project located on the Campus of The George Washington University, is seeking undergraduate and graduate interns for the summer of 2012. The Project collects, transcribes, and accessions material by and to Eleanor Roosevelt relating to her post White House political life. The Project is committed to offering interns a wide range of archival and editing experiences — including organization of documents, web development, and general office work. Many students also complete independent research projects on a topic related to the holdings of the Project.
Some background in U.S. history, women’s history/women’s studies, or international affairs is desirable. Foreign language skills are also useful. Applicants interested in the digital humanities and/or with experience using XML are encouraged to apply.

The William B. Crawley, Jr. Endowment for Student Research provides grants for students majoring in History or American Studies to undertake major research projects that entail the acquisition of or access to research materials, or travel to libraries or archives to conduct research. The Endowment was made possible by the generous gift of Theresa Young Crawley (Class of 1977) in honor of her husband, Distinguished Professor William B. Crawley, Jr., on the occasion of his retirement from the faculty of the University of Mary Washington after 40 years of service to its students, faculty, staff, and friends.
To apply for a William B. Crawley, Jr. Research Grant, please submit this application form (Crawley Endowment Research Grant Cover Sheet) with the requested attachments indicated below to Dr. Jeffrey McClurken. Funds from this grant may be used for major research papers such as those required in HIST and AMST 485, and HIST and AMST 491. Research materials purchased through this grant (e.g., monographs, primary source collections, microfilm) will become the property of the University of Mary Washington upon completion of the research project. Applications will be accepted in Spring 2012 on a rolling basis.
