Specific assignments will be developed based on the skills and interests of selected interns. See http://www.achp.gov/internships.html for descriptions of possible projects.

Internship opportunities are available for undergraduate or graduate students, as well as individuals at an early stage of their career and professional development.The ACHP is looking for candidates with an interest in historic preservation who may come from a wide variety of disciplines in addition to history or archaeology, such as architecture, planning, economics, law, journalism, and information technology.

Internships at the ACHP are flexible and can be for the summer (8-12 weeks) or for an alternative period of time, such as a quarter or a semester during the school year.  Interns are volunteers, though a small stipend may be provided. Projects can be tailored so that academic credit can be awarded. ACHP professional staff will supervise all interns.
