Last Thursday 5/2/19, 11 Fellows supported by both the Latino Initiative I2F and Asian Pacific American Initiative I2F Programs delivered final presentations to a full Q?rius Theater at the National Museum of Natural History (NMNH). Presentations featured a range of topics, including: using novel mitogenomic capture methods to help save Chile’s Southern River Otter, Shark Scales and Art, Asian American History in the American South, and An Examination of Latinofuturism and Space History.

The I2F Programs are designed to encourage participants to understand the multitude of professional opportunities across the Smithsonian Institutions. Each intern participates in a 15-week internship during which they work with assigned mentors to develop fellowship proposals. Following the 15-week internship, each proposal is reviewed and some are granted a 15-week fellowship offer.
