Summer Internship Program

In 2009, Dumbarton Oaks revived a program summer internships for landscape architecture students that had existed at the institution between the mid-1950s and the early 1970s.  Students work half-time in the gardens learning planting design, maintenance, and historic garden conservation with garden staff, and half-days on research projects under the supervision of the Director of Garden and Landscape Studies.
