Internship Opportunities

The foundation offers three seasonal internship positions each semester of the university school year (spring, fall, summer). Gain valuable experience working for a nonprofit alongside an energetic and talented staff and volunteer team.

We have filled all of all of our internship positions for spring 2017. We are currently accepting applications for summer 2017 and will begin interviews for summer 2017 in late March. 

Quotes from past interns about their time working at the foundation: 

"I couldn't be more grateful for such a rewarding first internship. I learned so much from you all and really enjoyed working for the Foundation. You were always so helpful and an amazing mentor- and so much fun to work with too." 

"I've held a number of internship positions in the past few years and my position as Event Intern with the Madison Public Library Foundation undoubtedly afforded me the greatest amount of autonomy and useful life skills, as well as the kindest, most supportive community of coworkers. At MPLF I consistently felt like a valued and trusted member of the staff team, rather than merely a temporary worker upon which to foist menial tasks. I will truly miss coming into the MPLF office every week and seeing everyone's welcoming, friendly faces, and would recommend an internship with the Foundation to any undergrad or graduate student with an interest in libraries, communications, fundraising, or community development."

“I learned so much as an intern for the Foundation. I felt the Foundation team really wanted to help me gain relevant experience and made me feel welcome. I worked on a variety of projects, which kept things exciting. Best of all, I had real responsibility and autonomy but knew the entire staff was there to support me. Thank you for a wonderful semester!”
