The Colleges of Arts & Sciences, UH Manoa
Washington, D.C. Internships at the Smithsonian

Since 1998, the Colleges of Arts & Sciences of the University of Hawai'i at Manoa have sponsored undergraduate students in Washington, D.C. internships.  Beginning with only one student the first year, we now typically send three students annually to spend the fall semester at the Smithsonian Institution.  Students remain enrolled at UH Manoa and put together programs with their major advisers that allow them to receive up to 12 academic credits while they intern in Washington, D.C.

The Smithsonian Institution is the grand repository of our national history and culture.  Students are placed according to their interests in a wide variety of internships.  Recent students have worked in the Asia-Pacific collection, the Popular Culture collection, and the Medical Museum.  Students live in dorms provided by The Washington Center, and work full-time as interns, while earning UH credit. 

The costs covered by these semester-long internships include roundtrip airfare, room and board in D.C., and a monthly stipend.

The internships are possible through the generous support of the following:

  • Hiram L. Fong Endowment in the Arts & Sciences
  • National Capital Region Chapter of the University of Hawaii Alumni Association
  • Francis & Sarah Sogi Fellowship
