Smithsonian Affiliations Internship

Smithsonian Affiliations offers internships focused on national outreach based on availability and current activities of the staff. Projects vary in focus and intensity and range from short-term, part-time appointments to full-time summer-long commitments. Working side-by-side with the Affiliations staff, interns develop specialized skills in national conference planning, membership management, fundraising, public relations, programmatic marketing, web management, and new media strategy. In addition, interns will develop professional networking skills while working collaboratively among the various Smithsonian museums and units to learn how to develop educational programming and coordinate object loans for Affiliates across the country.
