Smithsonian Castle building is closed for the rest of the day, due to a small fire which is now extinguished. All other museums remain open.
Hundreds of graduate students and holders of doctorates come to the Smithsonian to do independent research under the guidance of a member of our world-class research staff. Fellows have the opportunity to study and work intensively with Smithsonian collections and experts in their fields and beyond. In addition, more than 1500 students pursue internships offered across the organization.
