Dear Ms. XXXX,

I am writing to you to apply for a summer internship that will utilize my skills in research, leadership and management. I feel that a Special Programs Coordinator position at the Smithsonian would give me an opportunity to continue developing the research skills I have acquired at Fitchburg State University, and that while learning, I could also contribute in a creative, independent manner.

Currently, I am a rising senior at Fitchburg State University and I am majoring in History and minoring in Economics. I am also the president of the Black Student Union (BSU) and am responsible for a $4000-plus budget to implement programs to benefit the campus community. In addition to the BSU, I am currently employed at the Intercultural Resource Center, the mission of which is to recruit and retain students of color. I have helped with organizing cultural events for the campus and with informing prospective students of the Center's facilities. I feel that this experience, as well as the rest of my experience described briefly on the enclosed resume, will help me with working at the Smithsonian.

I am very interested in the challenges and opportunities that this internship has to offer and I feel confident of the skills that I have to contribute. I will call your office next Tuesday to discuss the possibility of meeting with you at your convenience. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

XXXXXXXX XXXXXX
