Smithsonian Fellowships and Internships Workshop and Reception – PLEASE REGISTER

October 18, 2016 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Are you interested in doing an internship or fellowship at the Smithsonian Institution?

Workshop: October 18 1:30-2:30 pm   Reception:  October 18 2:30-3:30 pm

In the past couple of years, Mason students and faculty have held internships or fellowships in these Smithsonian Museums and offices:

National Zoological Park
National Museum of African American History and Culture
Office of Chief Information Officer
Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institution in Thailand
National Museum of American History
National Portrait Gallery
National Museum of the American Indian
Office of the Assistant Secretary for Education and Access
National Museum of Natural History
Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage
Smithsonian Environmental Research Center
and others, too.

On Thursday, November 12th, join Karen Carter, SI Program Specialist, to learn out about the broad array of SI’s academic appointment opportunities, from museums to programs to administrative offices. Mason students have a special advantage, as you can participate during the academic year, and just take Metro to DC-based internships!  Learn about:

  • basic qualifications
  • best times to apply
  • how to search for opportunities
  • tips for navigating the on-line application system
  • what reviewers look for in essays
  • other pertinent information.

Karen Carter will hold a workshop from 1:30-2:30pm that focuses on student programs but also highlights faculty opportunities, in George’s. Immediately following the presentation, students and faculty are invited to a reception (with refreshments) from 2:30-3:30 where Smithsonian representatives and the Office of Graduate Fellowships will be present to help answer questions. The workshops are free but pre-registration is required.

REGISTER!  You will be taken to a login screen, and then the event details. If you don’t see the Register button in the bottom left corner, then click the date of the event to get to registration page. If you are a community member or alumni, and are unable to login to the registration system, please email to RSVP (we’re happy to include you).
