Texas Historical Commission Diversity Internship Application Period Now Open!

The THC created the Diversity Internship in Historic Preservation to build interest in and awareness of careers in historic preservation, specifically among students from underrepresented cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups. The THC recognizes that many such groups are currently underrepresented in the professional fields related to historic preservation. This initiative targets undergraduate students to encourage their interest in pursuing fields of study in history, preservation, architecture, archeology, downtown revitalization, and heritage tourism.

Students will learn about the impact that historic preservation programs can have on a community's economic development. Working with THC staff and programs will expose the interns to the various and exciting vocational opportunities in the field of historic preservation, with the goal of increasing the number of historic and cultural resources associated with the state’s diverse cultural history that are identified, documented, preserved and interpreted as well as increase the number of diverse organizations and communities involved in the historic preservation field and served by public and private preservation programs.
