The Smithsonian Institution’s Summer Institute in Museum Anthropology (SIMA) is accepting applications from graduate students for the summer 2013 program until March 1. SIMA is an intensive four-week training program that teaches graduate students how to use museum collections in research, incorporating Smithsonian collections as an integral part of their training. It is based at the Smithsonian Department of Anthropology and includes both classroom training and guided work on individual collection-based research projects. Support from the Cultural Anthropology Program at NSF covers full tuition and living expenses for 12 students each summer.
