Archival Internships

NOTICE: The Lemelson Center Archival Internship at the Archives Center, National Museum of American History, is suspended for 2013.

The Archives Center will be temporarily relocated from 2012–2014 due to a major renovation project at the National Museum of American History. Archives Center priorities and space availability during this two-year period are in transition and therefore we will not host a summer 2013 Lemelson Center Archival Intern.

Please check back for updates.
