Truman Library Internship Offers Unique Experience for Students

The Harry S. Truman Presidential Museum and Library Internship provides an opportunity for students to spend a summer and gain experience at the Truman Library, located in Independence, Mo.

The internship is open to all juniors and seniors, regardless of major, who meet University requirements for an internship. Students can earn up to 10 hours of credit for this full-time, eight-week unpaid internship, coinciding with the University’s eight-week summer session.

After being selected by a University committee and the Truman Library staff, an intern may work in a variety of areas in the Library including archives, public relations, marketing, educational programming, museum development or visitor services. Assignments are based on individual abilities and interests along with the Library’s needs.

Two Truman students will be selected for the 2015 summer internship. Each will receive a five-hour, in-state tuition scholarship. The internship has been made possible by a generous endowment from the family of Fred and Ethel Schwengel.
Applications are due Dec. 8. For more information or to obtain an application, contact Jeff Gall at or 660.785.7747.
