The Office of Special Events at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History is currently accepting internship applications for fall 2017!

Fall will be a particularly exciting time to intern at the Museum! In October, we will hold our 3rd Annual Food History Gala. The Gala is a fundraiser for Smithsonian Food History programs and includes the presentation of the Julia Child Award by the Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts. Past recipients are Jacques Pépin and Rick Bayless. This fall, we will also present our third Great Americans award. Past Great Americans honorees are former Secretaries of State Madeleine Albright and Colin Powell. These are only a few of the exciting events taking place this fall!  

To apply, please submit a cover letter, resume, letter of recommendation, and unofficial transcript to NMAHSpecialEvents@si.edu. Start and end dates and full time or part time availability should be included as well. The application deadline is Saturday, July 1st.
