A new partnership between UH and the Smithsonian Institution will give five Honors College students the chance to intern at one of the institution’s museums or research centers this summer.
Honors students Lenore Caston-Miller, Madison Richard, Ben Lueders, Isme Corre and Jeffrey Hong will work in Washington, D.C. for three weeks as part of a new partnership between the Honors College and the Institution that was created with the intention of expanding out-of-state opportunities.
“There is only one Smithsonian in the world, and that is why this partnership is important, as it will offer a once-in-a-lifetime learning experience for our students,” said Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Paula Myrick Short in a press release. “As the only Tier One public research university in the fourth-largest city in the United States, our students have incredible opportunities every day.”
Each student will get a $1,500 stipend to help with flight and boarding costs, and they will each stay on the Georgetown University campus.
