The Foundation for Advancement in Conservation (FAIC) and National Park Service National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT) are looking for currently enrolled or recently graduated students for two paid internship opportunities to take place remotely this summer. Applications for the internships are due on March 15. Notifications will be made by April 1 and the internships will begin in June.
FAIC/NCPTT Writing Remote Internship: Work on NCPTT's new, short publication series focusing on preservation guidance for small institutions, such as small house museums, public homeowners, and collectors. These publications, "Preservation in Practice Briefs," are two to four pages in length and include 5-6 high resolution images that illustrate points in the documents. The intern will undertake a literature review, draft text, find images, and produce at least one 1,100-1,500-word Preservation in Practice Brief. The intern will receive a $7,000 stipend for completion of the five-week internship.
FAIC/NCPTT Architectural Rendering Remote Internship: Work with NCPTT's documentation team to produce AutoCAD renderings of historic slave cabins and tenant farming houses. At the end of this ten-week internship, the intern is expected to have completed drawings of ten structures and a "how to" video on the process to go from point cloud to architectural rendering. A set of drawings should include floor plan, four elevations, and cutaway. The intern will receive a $14,000 stipend for completion of the ten-week internship.
