Undergrad Internship at Smithsonian Museum of Natural History

Natural History Research Experiences (NHRE) is a 10-week summer internship program hosted at the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC.

NATURAL HISTORY RESEARCH EXPERIENCE (NHRE)

 

OBJECTIVES:   NHRE summer internships pair undergraduates with
museum scientists to complete a research project in Anthropology,
Botany, Entomology, Invertebrate Zoology, Mineral Science,
Paleobiology, Vertebrate Zoology, or Museum Education. Although the
majority of time during the internship is spent working on the
research project, there are additional events including lectures,
tours of museum collections, and other activities related to natural
history research.

ELIGIBILITY
 Previous research experience is not required, and the sponsor
encourages applications from minorities and members of other groups
underrepresented in the sciences.

FUNDING
 Participating students will receive a stipend of $5,500 and be
provided with housing in a dormitory at George Washington University.
A relocation allowance may also be available.

The program runs for 10 weeks starting the day after Memorial Day.

DEADLINE: January 30, 2013
