The Seminole Tribe of Florida’s Tribal Historic Preservation Office (THPO) internship program welcomes students and recent graduates who wish to broaden their education and professional experience by working and learning about the preservation of the Seminole Tribe’s cultural resources. Several THPO Sections offer interns a hands-on and unique environment in exchange for a substantive contribution from hard working and interested individuals.
The THPO, which is located on the Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation, works to preserve Seminole historic and archaeological sites and can provide interns with a unique opportunity to participate in the development and expansion of the THPO’s services and programs for the Tribal community.
Applications are accepted on a continuous basis throughout the year and are first come first serve. Internships require a minimum commitment of five (5) hours per week, during which time interns complete a specific target project as well as daily assignments. Interns may also participate in special events, various educational programs, as well as attend departmental meetings.
The THPO does not offer paid internships but does participate in cooperative education programs. Students interested in cooperative education or academic credit should contact their academic advisor for more information.
Interested applicants should have an interest in Anthropology, Archaeology, Native American Studies, Historic Preservation or a related subject.
