Do you have an interest in marine archaeology or African art? Maybe you just want a productive way to spend your summer getting hands-on experience working in anthropology as well as in an office environment. Whatever your career goals may be, the AAA internship program provides two exceptional students with the opportunity to spend a summer earning valuable work experience and living in Washington, D.C.
“I appreciated the reality of the internship, the kindness of the people I worked with and the glimpse of world-applicable work that I received,” said 2015 AAA intern Emily Haver. “The things I treasure most are the connections I made with fellow archaeologists and culture enthusiasts, and the ideas they gave to lead me to my next steps in anthropology.”
Funded entirely by member donations, AAA internships are six weeks in length, running from the end of June through August. The internships are unpaid, but interns will be provided housing and a meal/travel stipend.
Interns will spend the majority of their time working on-site at either the Naval History & Heritage Command or the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art. Individuals selected for the program will also have the opportunity to work on special projects at the AAA offices in Arlington, Virginia.
Applications are due before March 15.
