Museum Fellowship and Internship Program

Two one-year graduate fellowships and six undergraduate summer internships in historic preservation. ABSTRACT: Funds for two one-year graduate fellowships and six undergraduate summer internships. Program, begun in 1968 with private funding designed to develop skills of graduate students who are majoring in an academic discipline of the humanities and to provide a summer's experience for humanities undergraduates in history, architecture, art history and related humanistic disciplines connected with accurate and discerning historic preservation. Recent popular and governmental interest in and support of historic preservation is jeopardized by lack of skilled and experienced persons working in the preservation field. Graduate fellow, with guidance of Trust's professional staff, investigates and compiles materials related to status and nature of preservation legislation in the nation, economic impact of preservation in a community, relationships between preservation and urban planning, community improvements, etc. Undergraduate interns collect and organize slides, photos, maps, ect., to create visual reference archive to supplement Trust's extensive documentary archives of the American preservation movement and aid in disseminating publications. Funds for fellowships, internships, salaries, travel. Trust to absorb office, equipment and indirect costs.
