An internship must be of at least 2 to 4 months in duration to be deemed eligible for ASIP funding. The Program awards a sum of $7000.00 CDN each, for up to ten internships annually. The award is allocated by $6000 in cash and $1000 paid on your behalf to the Smithsonian as a program fee. The actual number of recipients will depend on the specific dates and durations of internships requested, and the ability of the Smithsonian Institution to find placements for the successful nominees. The monetary award will be paid in a lump sum at the commencement of an internship. Students are required to pay for a return airline ticket as well as their living and accommodation costs for the duration of their internship from these funds. If an intern is required to withdraw for reasons other than personal health or a family bereavement, a pro-rated amount of the award for the portion of the internship not completed, will have to be returned. For more information on the monetary award, or withdrawal conditions, please contact the ASIP Coordinator.
