Each spring, the American Anthropological Association offers virtual internship opportunities for high school students interested in learning more about anthropological research. Internships are four weeks in length and usually extend from mid-May through mid-June.
Interns work on a primary and secondary project during their time in the program. The primary project involves researching contemporary anthropological scholarship and adapting it for a 6th-12th grade audience. Secondary projects rotate each year, but typically focus on accessibility or public education.
The 2023 program will accept applications starting March 6, 2023 and ending on April 9, 2023.
Questions about the internship can be sent to Caitlyn Kolhoff, Assistant Director, Education Programs.

The application for 2023 is currently closed. Please check back in March 2024 for next year’s application.
