Practicum/Field Study Program

Opportunities may be available on a limited case-by-case basis for students who wish to fulfill academic requirements for practicums or field studies. The Smithsonian Libraries and Archives does not provide a stipend for these projects and students must be enrolled in a program that will grant academic credit.

If you wish to pursue a practicum or field study project, please email SLAIntern@si.edu . In your email, include a resume, the full details of your practicum or field study program (academic institution, hours required, etc.), a description of the type of project you are interested in, and your learning objectives.

Placement is dependent on project and staff availability and not guaranteed.
