General Internship Program

Opportunities for our General Internship program are posted here when available. Although most are part-time and in the DC area, please note the specific hours and geographic location for each. While most are unpaid learning experiences, we are happy to work with a student’s college or university to help them obtain credit. 

Applications for all projects will be collected through the Smithsonian Online Academic Appointment System (https://solaa.si.edu/). Be sure to select "Smithsonian Institution Libraries" as the unit and "Smithsonian Institution Libraries Internship Program" as the program. You may then select the applicable projects.  Applications should include an essay detailing your academic and career goals and what you hope to learn through this internship, as well as a resume, academic transcripts and two references. 
 

Applications for Spring 2019 have closed. Summer 2019 information will be available soon.
