The Young Ambassadors Program (YAP) is a national college preparatory and leadership program for graduating high school seniors that fosters the next generation of community-conscious Latino leaders in the arts, sciences, and humanities via the Smithsonian Institution and its resources. Selected applicants will participate in a weeklong pre-professional and pre-collegiate seminar in Washington, D.C. at the Smithsonian focusing on Latino perspectives with peers from all over the nation.
Smithsonian Affiliations, in collaboration with the Emerson Collective, Smithsonian Institution, and its Smithsonian Affiliates offers the Smithsonian Digital Learning and Engagement Internship to rising college sophomores, juniors, and seniors who are committed to helping communities, are passionate about social justice, and are driven to accelerate positive impact in our world.
To honor the achievements of DC Public high school graduate and Smithsonian Regent, Shirley Ann Jackson, the Smithsonian is accepting applications for an internship program named in her 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 science. Awarded students spend eight (8) weeks with their mentors in and around the Smithsonian facilities in the Washington DC area.
