TEACHERS & STUDENTS: The Texas Historical Commission is now accepting applications for the 2018 Preservation Scholars Program!!! Students, or student organizations, may be affiliated with the paid internship opportunity for the summer of 2018. The deadline for applications and supporting documents is March 16th. If selected, in-person interviews will be held in April.
The Friends of the Texas Historical Commission created the Preservation Scholars Program to build interest in, and awareness of careers in historic preservation, specifically among students from underrepresented cultural, ethnic, and socio-ecomonic groups. The initiative strives to encourage students’ interest in the fields of history, preservation, architecture, archeology, downtown revitalization and heritage tourism.
Preservation winners receive a $5,000 stipend for an 8-week internship.
