Worth Description:

  • The internships are paid. Benefits of an internship:
  • Travel, housing, and stipends may be provided to students on a limited basis. Students receiving stipends must work full time (forty hours per week).
  • Interns are selected by a review committee made up of five NMAI staff. Approximately twenty-five percent of applicants are accepted for internships during any one-year period.
  • Stipends may be provided to students in need whose applications are submitted on time and who are accepted into the program. Per Smithsonian Institution regulations, stipend amounts can typically range from approximately $1,000 to $8,000 for a ten-week session.
  • The amount of the stipend depends on the number of funds available and is at the discretion of the NMAI. Students who live in the Washington, D.C., region may receive a stipend that will offset the costs of commuting, approximately $500–$2,000 for a ten-week session.
