Smithsonian Virtual Internships
What Is A Smithsonian Virtual Internship?
All Smithsonian internships are real-world learning opportunities guided by a mentor. In the past, this has meant that would-be interns needed to physically travel to the Smithsonian in order to do an internship…but no longer.
Digital technology permits the Smithsonian to offer a growing number of internships that can be conducted, still with guidance from a Smithsonian mentor, online. You can be a Smithsonian Virtual Intern wherever you are.
