National Museum of the American Indian Internships

Internships are available with the National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI). Internships at NMAI are generally for post high school students, currently enrolled in an academic program or recently graduated from one, that are interested in the museum profession and related fields.

Interns complete projects using NMAI resources and other Smithsonian offices. Internships are an opportunity for students to learn about the museum’s collections, exhibitions, programs, and methodologies, and to meet professionals in the museum field. Interns are selected by a review committee made up of five NMAI staff. Applicants should indicate three departments of interest: for example, Public Affairs, Publications, or Collections Management.
