Please Note: These positions are highly competitive and there are limited spaces available. Submission of an application is not a guarantee of placement. The Smithsonian Institution and FONZ are committed to providing the safest environment for our staff and volunteers, as well as for our guests. Select applicants will be interviewed by staff, and those who are provisionally accepted will be fingerprinted and must pass a Smithsonian background check for any convictions directly related to the duties and responsibilities of the position. Only job-related convictions will be considered and will not automatically disqualify the candidate.
