The Smithsonian Office of Fellowships has the central management and administrative responsibility for the Institution’s programs of fellowships and research associate appointments. One of its primary objectives is the facilitation of the Smithsonian’s scholarly interactions with students and scholars at universities, museums, and other research institutions around the world. The Office administers Institution wide research support programs, and encourages and assists other Smithsonian museums, research institutes and research offices in the development of additional fellowships and visiting appointments.
