Weir Farm Na­tional His­toric Site is part­ner­ing with the Na­tional Coun­cil for Preser­va­tion Ed­u­ca­tion to pro­vide three paid in­tern­ships be­gin­ning this spring and sum­mer.

To be el­i­gi­ble, can­di­dates must be en­rolled in an aca­demic pro­gram in his­toric preser­va­tion or an al­lied field such as his­tory or ar­chae­ol­ogy, or re­cently grad­u­ated (Oc­to­ber 2017 or later). NCPE in­terns re­ceive a stipend equal to $15 per hour.

The in­tern­ships in­clude two “vis­i­tor ser­vice” in­tern­ships and a “cu­ra­to­rial in­tern” po­si­tion.

The cu­ra­to­rial in­tern will com­mit to 1,200 hours over 30 weeks and is for those in­ter­ested in a ca­reer in mu­seum col­lec­tions man­age­ment, his­tory, art, ar­chives, ar­chae­ol­ogy, preser­va­tion, or a re­lated dis­ci­pline. The vis­i­tor ser­vice in­terns will com­mit to the same num­ber of hours/weeks and will need strong com­mu­ni­ca­tion, in­ter­per­sonal, com­puter, re­search, writ­ing, and or­ga­ni­za­tional skills.

Hous­ing is not avail­able at Weir Farm Na­tional His­toric Site. The in­tern is re­spon­si­ble for hous­ing and trans­porta­tion. A back­ground check is re­quired for all in­tern­ship po­si­tions.
