Anthropology Internship Program

The Anthropology Internship Program offers internships for undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in programs in anthropology and related fields to work on projects relating to the collections or to the ongoing research interests of curatorial staff in the museum or in the field. In addition to Curatorial Research, internships can be considered in collections management, archives, and conservation. Internships are offered for periods ranging from three months to one year depending on the project. Grants provide monthly stipends for periods of two months to one year. The minimum work requirement for a paid internship is two days per week.

The purpose of this program is to partner with French and German institutions to permit an exchange of graduate students. This program will allow students to spend 3 months during the year at a selected university in France or Germany or for French and German students to come the to AMNH 3 months.

Grant Programs for Students, Postdoctoral Trainees, and Research Scientists

The AMNH Grants Program offers modest short term awards to advanced students, postdoctoral trainees, and scientific researchers who are commencing their careers in the fields covered by AMNH. Grants are available from four funds each having specific restrictions. Frank M. Chapman Grants support and foster research in ornithology, both neontological and paleontological. Lerner-Gray Grants for Marine Research support marine zoology. Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Grants support research on North American fauna in any phase of wildlife conservation or natural history.   
In 2008, the AMNH awarded 33 Frank M. Chapman Grants, 42 Lerner-Gray Grants, 43 Theodore Roosevelt Grants, and three Kade Grants.

Another program provides support to students, postdoctoral investigators, and research scientists specifically to visit the collections. The awards partially support travel and subsistence for scientists on short term AMNH visits.
