The Smithsonian Institution welcomes the opportunity to work cooperatively with schools seeking to grant academic credit for internships. Applicants are encouraged to initiate arrangements for credit with their college or university. The Smithsonian does not grant academic credit.
Internships occur during the summer, fall, and spring from 10 to 15 weeks, beginning June 1, September 15, and January 15. Start dates and duration are flexible and arranged in coordination with the supervisor.Application Deadlines
Applicants interested in combining an internship at the NMAAHC with a paid intern through the Minority Internship Program, Native American Internship Program, or James E. Webb Internship for Minority Undergraduate Juniors, Seniors, and Graduate Students in Business and Public Administration must submit an application by the deadline for these programs. For more information, see http://www.si.edu/ofg/intern.htm#iofg.
Part-time, 3-6 month intern projects will take place throughout the year. Specific start and end dates and hours will be determined by the intern supervisor and the intern. This is an unpaid internship.
Internships will take place at the National Museum of African American History and Culture office at Capital Gallery, SW., accessible by Metro Yellow/Green & Blue & Orange Lines.
An internship appointment is conditional, subject to your successful completion of a pre-appointment background investigation for a non-critical, sensitive position.
