Academic year 2015-2016 Internships with the National Park Service, the Department of the Interior & General Services Administration.
The National Park Service and partnering agencies will offer internships during the academic year of 2015-2016. This notice covers the period January to May 2016. A separate notice will be distributed in January 2016 for summer 2016 positions. Internships are for 400 hours (usually ten weeks at forty hours per week) and in Washington, DC except where noted. Stipends are issued based on a rate of twelve dollars per hour. The exact starting dates will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
To be eligible, you must be currently enrolled in an academic program in historic preservation or an allied field, or very recently graduated (degree received August 2014 or later). Interns are not eligible to work more than 1200 hours in this program; previous interns in the program must stay within this overall limit.
Please be aware that, unless otherwise noted, interns are responsible for travel to and housing at the internship location. This should be kept in mind particularly for those internships in the West. In some cases the supervising office may be able to assist in locating housing but it is ultimately up to the individual accepting the internship to find accommodations.
Also be aware that, due to Government-wide security requirements, a background check will be required for any position which involves access to Government computers, if you are chosen for that position. This will include providing information about recent housing and employment history. The position supervisor will have more information on requirements and procedures at the time of hiring.
