Smithsonian Affiliations offers internships for college and graduate students focused on strategic partnerships, national outreach, membership/fundraising, and communications/marketing. Internships are 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 outreach, event planning, membership management, fundraising, public relations, content 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.
Smithsonian Affiliations is currently not accepting new applications. Please check back in January 2019 for summer placement.
