Interested in the preservation, enhancement, and sustainable use of our nation's diverse historic resources? A small, independent federal agency, the ACHP oversees the historic preservation review process for federal projects and conducts a variety of preservation programs dealing with promoting public appreciation of cultural heritage, national preservation policy and legislation, Native American interests, community preservation, economic development, sustainability, building a more inclusive preservation program, and youth engagement.
This summer internship is for a current or recently graduated student. Specific assignments will be developed based on the skills and interests of the intern and agency needs.
