Jefferson-Madison Regional Library and the Albemarle-Charlottesville NAACP are encouraging a diverse group of students to consider professional library work as a career option. To further that goal, NAACP and JMRL have established a library internship and scholarship program for students in Albemarle, Charlottesville, Greene, Louisa, and Nelson.
The program offers 200 annual hours of library work experience and a stipend of $3,000. In addition, interns are eligible for an annual scholarship of $2,000 to be used toward completion of an Associate’s, Bachelor’s, or Master’s degree. Applicants must be at least 17 years of age or entering the 12th grade to apply.
Applications may be submitted on paper or in electronic form to Jefferson-Madison Regional Library. Successful applications must include the following:

• Transcripts showing all high school courses completed and GPA.
• A resume listing of work, volunteer, and extracurricular experience.
High school students must submit a letter of college admittance or a letter from a high school counselor verifying the applicant’s intention to attend college.
