Each summer, the American Anthropological Association offers two internship opportunities funded by member donations. Internships are six weeks in length and usually extend from early July through mid-August. Internships are unpaid, however they are provided housing and a meal/travel stipend.
Interns will spend approximately 40 percent of their time working onsite at the AAA offices in Arlington, VA, and the other 60 percent of their time working on-site at one of two locations: The Naval History & Heritage Command and The Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage.

We are currently planning on in person internship but that is subject to change. We are closely monitoring CDC health and safety guidelines and will make a final decision before the start of the internship program.
All U.S. and international undergraduate students that are rising juniors, juniors, or seniors, and first year graduate students (completing the first year of graduate work by June 2021), are eligible to apply for the program.
