US/ICOMOS call for applications for participants in the 2017 International Exchange Program (IEP).

US/ICOMOS has announced their call for applications for participants in the 2017 International Exchange Program (IEP).

US/ICOMOS is seeking graduate students and young professionals (1-3 years of experience) specialized in historic preservation and heritage conservation to participate in the 2017 IEP. Participants will be assigned practical working internships, under professional supervision, with a public or private nonprofit preservation organization. Internships for U.S. citizens are in other countries, organized in many cases in cooperation with the local ICOMOS National Committee. Internships for non-U.S. citizens are placed throughout the United States. The US/ICOMOS carefully organizes and manages the 12 week program from its Directorate offices in Washington, DC.

Positions are for interns with a bachelor’s degree (at a minimum) in a preservation or conservation-related field: architecture, landscape architecture, cultural resource management, materials conservation, interpretation, history of architecture, archaeology, industrial archaeology, public history or cultural tourism.

The selection process for the US/ICOMOS International Exchange Program is highly competitive; approximately one in five applications is successful.
