The National Museum of African American History and Culture is hosting a student roundtable for those who would like to learn more about their Robert Frederick Smith Internship Program. The summer program provides well-paid full-time internships for 12 weeks with projects in DC, Pittsburgh, and other locations around the country. This information session on the Robert F. Smith program will include application instructions, internship benefits, and tips on making your application competitive.

The program seeks to build a professional pipeline for historically underrepresented individuals to grow successful careers in the cultural sector. All internship opportunities with this program will focus on work related to digital imaging, media preservation, digital preservation of personal and community objects, digital content management, collections information management, recording and preserving oral histories, or digital film-making.
