Alberta Smithsonian Internship Program (ASIP)
The Government of Alberta and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., the world’s most renowned museum complex, collaborated in 2006 to jointly sponsor and launch ASIP - Alberta Smithsonian Internship Program. This unique program enables students enrolled in a degree program at any post-secondary institution in Alberta to study and work alongside recognized scholars, scientists, and educators in a variety of disciplines, either at the Institution itself or at one of its affiliated sites elsewhere in the world (e.g. New York, Alaska, Florida, and Panama). Some of the thematic areas for internships are in the disciplines of Art & Design, Business, Fine Arts, History & Culture, Music, and Science & Technology.
