[[underlined]] Indirect Recruitment [[/underlined]]

Indirect recruitment programs are designed to acquaint students and scholars with Smithsonian resources and techniques, research directions, and career possibilities.  They not only help to develop the pool of candidates for future jobs at the Smithsonian and other museums and research institutes, but they also give program participants experience and contacts to help them obtain positions at such organizations.

Over the past three fiscal years, program size has increased to serve more participants.  There has also been a gradually improving representation and diversification among the racial/ethnic groups as shown in Figure B-2 below:
