The International Center serves as a home for several independent units

that foster the Smithsonian's international activities, and organize various types of international programs that are not ordinarily undertaken elsewhere within the Institution. Internships are created as the need arises, in connection with the development of specific projects by the various units. International Center units include the Office of International Relations, the International Gallery,

the Smithsonian Institution Monitoring and Assessment of Biodiversity Program, and the Washington office of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute. Some of these units occasionally have projects suitable for interns to work on; others rarely do. Thus, internship opportunities in the Center do not exist year-round, or necessarily during the summer, but occur at random and sporadic intervals. Applications will be considered from graduate students and undergraduates in their junior or senior years of college. Typical intern duties include research, writing, editing, scheduling, archiving, database management and light office work.
