To honor the achievements of DC Public high school graduate and Smithsonian Regent, Robert P. Kogod, the Smithsonian is accepting applications for an internship program named in his honor. This internship is for District of Columbia public high school students entering their junior or senior year or finishing their senior year. The internship is awarded to a student interested in the arts. Awarded students spend eight (8) weeks with their mentors in and around the Smithsonian facilities in the Washington DC area.
The National Postal Museum looks at American history through the unique lens of mail and communication, adding new and unexpected insights to those stories. This project based internship takes place within the joint Education and Visitor Services department, which interprets and makes accessible our museum content and works to improve the visitor experience in a variety of ways. The projects can vary widely each season, but follow that same core values of interpreting content and connecting it to museum visitors, online and in person.
