From the Smithsonian Institution
This is for the spring of 2019, but you could ask about a summer internship.
I am reaching out on behalf of the Office of Special Events at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History as we are currently accepting internship applications for spring 2019! I would greatly appreciate if you could share this exciting opportunity with any of your students who might be interested.
As part of the Development branch of the museum, the Office of Special Events at the National Museum of American History plans and coordinates over 100 events each year including: exhibition openings, press conferences, donation ceremonies, staff receptions, donor cultivation events, and corporate dinners and receptions.
Attached is an internship description which includes testimonials from former interns. Additional information concerning qualifications, responsibilities, and learning objectives can be found here. Information about events at the Museum can also be found by visiting http://americanhistory.si.edu/museum/special-events. To apply, please create an account on SOLAA and choose “National Museum of American History (NMAH) Internship Program” with Special Events as your program choice. The application deadline is Thursday, November 1st.
While unpaid, we typically offer a one-time $500 stipend to help with travel and transportation expenses.
Please let me know if you have any questions regarding this opportunity.
