The Research Training Program is a museum-based, in-residence program

geological or anthropological sciences. Through a competitive review
process approximately 20 outstanding students from around the world

Smithsonian scientist to investigate a natural history research topic
as well as participate in a series of lectures, workshops,
demonstrations, behind-the-scenes tours, and field trips that focused
on exploring natural history science and developing the skills
necessary to become effective researchers. Students, in collaboration
with their Smithsonian research advisor, develop and test a scientific
hypothesis and communicate the results through written manuscripts
plus oral and poster presentations. Research is conducted in-residence
at the Smithsonian's National Museum o f Natural History in
Washington, DC utilizing the vast research facilities and collection
of the Museum including 126 million natural history specimens.
