Since 1984, the US/ICOMOS IEP has engaged partners across the world in hands-on training of emerging cultural heritage professionals. To date, more than 700 preservation interns and 70 nationalities have participated. The program shares the best cultural heritage preservation practices from the United States and around the world with young and emerging professionals from the US and overseas. The IEP also reinforces the importance of the personal and communal benefits of international cultural engagement.

The IEP strengthens skills and establishes lifelong professional and personal contacts. These connections are the basis of so many positive relationships that improve the quality of the international heritage profession, and the lives of practitioners across the globe. In a time when some nations look to build walls, the IEP builds bridges.

The deadline to apply to host an intern is 5th February 2018.

More detailed information on the 2018 IEP can be found in the PDF here and on the US/ICOMOS website.
