National Council for Preservation Education

The National Council for Preservation Education, in cooperation with the National Park Service (NPS) and other partnering agencies, is pleased to offer internships during the summer of 2019. NCPE has partnered with the NPS since 1992 to connect higher education students and recent graduates in historic preservation, cultural resource management, and related fields to projects at hundreds of sites and divisions within the NPS system and other agencies annually. Completing an application is the first step in securing an internship at Cane River Creole National Historical Park.

The length of an internship can vary from 10 to 30 weeks if full-time (40 hours/week) or longer if on a part-time schedule. The exact starting dates will be determined on a case-by-case basis with the supervisor.

To be eligible, applicants must be currently enrolled in an academic program or recently graduated (degree received May 2018 or later). Interns are not eligible to work more than 1200 hours total in this program; previous interns in the program must stay within this overall limit.
