New York University (New York, NY 10012-1019)
Juana Suarez (Project Director: May 2018 to present)
Education and Fieldwork in Media Archiving and Preservation

Scholarships for 24 internships as part of New York University‚Äôs Moving Image Archiving and Preservation (MIAP) Program.  Fourteen scholarships of $7,000 each would place students in New York City cultural heritage institutions for a semester, while another ten scholarships at $10,000 each would place them at institutions across the country for a summer.

Media collections carry distinctive value for the humanities, but they are also vulnerable to displacement, deterioration, and loss. NYU's Moving Image Archiving and Preservation (MIAP) Program teaches students to assess, repair, catalog, and preserve both analog and digital media in a range of formats. Internships provide practical training and professional development that complement students' classroom learning. Interns also improve the condition and accessibility of audiovisual collections that serve as primary source materials in the humanities. Support from NEH for our Education and Fieldwork in Media Archiving and Preservation project will help MIAP sustain and expand its internship program by facilitating 24 additional internships in media-rich humanities collections over a two-year period. Of the requested funds, 96% would go toward stipends for student interns and 4% to archival consultants supporting internships at sites that lack an archival supervisor on staff.
