The Walter P. Reuther Library invites applications for the Ronald Raven Annual Award for the Winter Semester 2020. Graduate students enrolled in Wayne State's History Department or the School of Information Sciences are eligible for this award.

The successful applicant must be in good academic standing and demonstrate financial need. The award consists of a $1250 tuition stipend and a semester-long internship at the Walter P. Reuther Library of Labor and Urban Affairs.

Successful interns can receive the award multiple times, but successive awards are neither automatic nor guaranteed. This award is sponsored by Wayne State University alumnus Ronald Raven, a former graduate student intern in the Labor History Archives in the early 1970s. Raven earned a certificate in Archives Administration from the Wayne State University Department of History.

The award is given in the Winter and Fall semesters. Applicants should be able to commit to 135 hours of on-site archival processing and records management work with the University Archivist. Preference will be given to applicants who have completed the introductory archival administration course INF 7710/ HIS 7840. This position requires the ability to climb a ladder and to lift, shelve, and retrieve boxes weighing up to 40 pounds.
