Welcome to our webpage dedicated to supporting internships within our industry! ACRA and many of its member firms have supported internships for many years, and we are now providing a single place where students may look for potential internships and firms may advertise their need for interns. ACRA recognizes that the future of our industry lies within the next generation; therefore, it is important to provide opportunities for learning and experience. Please review the ACRA guidelines and the SAA Record articles for general information.
We are proud to announce that ACRA has reached an agreement with the National Council for Preservation Education (NCPE) to provide up to six internships on a yearly basis. The candidates from NCPE have a primary background in architectural history and preservation, although a few also have an archaeological background.
NCPE will promote the internship program by contacting academic program directors, provide preservation program contact information to ACRA and/or participating firms to enable firms to understand the curriculum attributes of the individual academic programs. NCPE will send a list of the available ACRA internships to its academic program members at the beginning of the hiring cycle and post the internship announcements on its website and on “Preservenet.”
The intern, the respective academic program director, and the ACRA firm will work together to ensure a robust professional experience for the student. Appropriate compensation and potentially a housing allowance should be worked out between the student and the firm.
This webpage, however, is available to all students who are seeking an internship opportunity; affiliation with a NCPE program is not required. This webpage is to serve as a clearing house for students and firms alike who are pursuing an internship program.
