Grants, Internships & Research Programs

  • Smithsonian Institution Internships and Research Programs – The Smithsonian is a collection of museums, mostly in the DC area, but also in New York, Costa Rica, and other locations. Almost all offer opportunities for internships and research opportunities for undergraduates (paid and unpaid). There are several opportunities to work with Smithsonian museums during the academic year (less competition) as well as the summer. Start your search by looking at the Office of Fellowships and Internships website, and then move to the specific museum.
  • Title VI Department of Education Grant- The Title VI Project “Communities as Agents of Change: Language and Area Studies for a Sustainable Future” is committed to diversifying and strengthening international education across Western Illinois University. This is a project that resulted from collaboration between WIU and Spoon River College and has received funding for the next 3 years. Find scholarship funds to study abroad.
