The Smithsonian’s Young Ambassador Program for Latino Youth looks like a fantastic opportunity for a graduating senior. The program is aimed at cultivating, inspiring and training the next generation of Latino/a leaders. Latino students who are graduating in 2013 can apply for a 1 week all-expenses paid internship training in Washington, D.C. after which students will be placed in one of selected partner museums or cultural centers for a 4-week internship. While travel and expenses are covered for the D.C. portion of the experience, students are responsible for their own expenses during their internship placement. At the conclusion of the internship, students will receive a $2000 stipend.

Read the application guide in advance of your application, there is lots of good information in it and it will save you time. (Note, the title of the pdf is “2009 Young Ambassador Program” but all of the dates in the publication appear to be for the 2013 application.) It looks like students must be citizens or legal permanent residents and scheduled to enter an institute of higher education in the fall of 2013.
