The theme for the 2017 Fall Semester ACHP-SI fellowship is Latino Heritage. Those with an interest in learning more about the preservation of Latino culture, heritage, sites and artifacts are especially encouraged to apply.
Over the course of at least 10 weeks (Fall Session: September – December), fellows will explore cultural heritage preservation both in situ at a site that is on or eligible to be on the National Register of Historic Places and ex situ in Washington, DC. During their fellowship, fellows are expected to spend no less than one week at the chosen historic site and will spend the remaining time in Washington, DC. While in DC, fellows will split their time between the ACHP and the Smithsonian. This place-based, cultural heritage fellowship will highlight the connection between intangible cultural heritage and place.
Current or recent undergraduate or graduate students with an interest in cultural and/or historic preservation are eligible. Some familiarity with cultural and/or historic preservation is desirable, but not required.
