The Connecticut Commission on Culture & Tourisms Internship Program for historic preservation provides eligible college students with meaningful opportunities to apply and test their skills and knowledge in the world of work.

The program:

  • Augments academic learning through practical application in the workplace
  • Allows students to explore professional options in their chosen fields
  • Facilitates the successful transition from college to work
  • Helps develop a pipeline of trained workforce in the state
  • Promotes the recruitment and retention of skilled talent in Connecticut
