"For applicants to all programs Request reviewers' critiques in writing if rejected. Reapply if rejected. Humanists are too easily discouraged. Work with the project rep in developing the project (for programs other than individual fellowships). The reps will assist in the revision and resubmission process for projects that are not successful the first time. Often the exchange can be accomplished via e-mail. "Keep coming back." "

Dear Joel,
Thank you for your interest in Smithsonian Global Sound. We are a small office and rely on intern support in web design, ethnomusicology research and cataloguing, and marketing. If you are interested in these areas and can think of a way your studies may intersect with our needs, please send a resume and cover letter to me at We require interns to work in the Washignton, D.C., office for a minimum of 20 hours a week for three months. Also, there may be people at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian working on similar projects with more direct research and outreach into the communities with which you wish to work. Perhaps there is opportunity for internship there that could collaborate with Smithsonian Global Sound.
