Pipestone National Monument Hiring a paid Cultural resources intern

(Pipestone, MN) The National Park Service and American Conservation Experience (ACE) are seeking to hire a 2018 Cultural Resources Diversity Internship Program (CRDIP) Intern at Pipestone National Monument. The program provides an opportunity for college students to accomplish a variety of cultural properties inventories and museum condition assessment oriented tasks for a variety of property and artifact types within the Monument. Cultural properties or museum collection items can include landscapes, ethnographic, historic or archeological districts, archeological sites, historic structures, or objects.  

The Cultural Resources Diversity Internship Program (CRDIP) is a special professional development internship offering that supports undergraduate and graduate students, from diverse underrepresented populations, who wish to gain exposure to and experience in the historic preservation/cultural resources fields of work.  Applicants must be 18-35, from a diverse underrepresented population, and either A) in pursuit of a higher education degree or B) within two years of graduation from a degree program. Applicants must have strong interest in cultural resources management, such as archeological fieldwork, anthropology, ethnography, or historic research; and museum studies or collections management

The CRDIP Cultural Resource Management Intern will work 10 weeks at the monument over the summer. Local housing options are available and reasonable housing costs in the area will be covered by ACE. The position comes with a $400/week stipend as well as a travel stipend to offset the cost of relocation. The start date is to be determined (TBD). This excellent opportunity is ideal for an enthusiastic young professional. The monument is affiliated with 23 American Indian tribes, is of great interest to descendant communities, and promotes strong relationships and engagement with American Indians. The Monument is an internationally recognized bedrock raw material source where pipestone or catlinite, a variety of Sioux Formation argillite, has been quarried for millennia.
