Applicants will be chosen based on their scholarly qualifications, experience working with APA communities, and the quality of the research project proposed and its suitability to APA Center’s missions and goals. Eligible applicants must be a current college student, recent college graduate (within one calendar year), and/or have been accepted to enter an advanced degree program. Most interns are at the senior or junior undergraduate level, though strongly qualified sophomores and freshmen will be considered. Graduate students are eligible to apply. Internships are unavailable for high school students.

To apply, register on the Smithsonian Online Academic Appointment System (SOLAA). Through the website’s left navigation, follow the instructions and choose the APA Center’s internship option. Please note that accepted applicants will need to submit background check forms one month before their start date. In addition, accepted applicants are responsible for arranging their own housing during their appointment.

Internships through the APA Center are unpaid, but interns may receive academic credit through their universities. The APA Center is willing to coordinate with each intern and school in completing the necessary paperwork. Students are encouraged to apply for independent grants or scholarships through their schools or outside sources to financially support them during their internship appointment. Funding is available on a competitive basis through the Minority Awards Program from the Smithsonian Institution’s Office of Fellowships and Internships.

The Smithsonian Institution is an Equal Opportunity Employer
