The Smithsonian Institution (SI), established in 1846 for the increase and diffusion of knowledge, is a group of museums and research centers administered by the Government of the United States. The institution is named after its founding donor, British scientist James Smithson.
The National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) is a natural-history museum administered by the Smithsonian Institution. The museum was established in 1910.
The Peter Buck Fellowship Program was established in 2011 and is designed to complement the Smithsonian Institution Fellowship Program (SIFP), allowing NMNH to offer more diverse and longer term fellowships.
The purpose of the programme is to support full-time, resident, independent research focused on using the NMNH collections and facilities. The two central goals of the programme are to train the next generation of scientists and museum professionals, and to increase the ﬂow of new ideas, perspectives, and skills into the Museum community through full-time resident fellowships.
