Internships with HPD
The Georgia Historic PreservationDivision (HPD) welcomes student interns from colleges and universities across Georgia and the Southeast. Our interns often have a background and interest in academic areas such as African American studies, anthropology, archaeology, architecture, architectural history, city planning, geography, historic preservation, public history, public information/public relations, urban studies, and women’s history.

HPD offers a limited number of internships through colleges and universities that are
supplemented by tuition assistance. HPD also periodically has paid internships available that do
not come with tuition credit, as well as unpaid internships. Internships are based on an academic
calendar and require the intern be enrolled part- or full-time in an accredited college or
university. The intern must arrange for and work with an appropriate supervising faculty
member during the internship. HPD also offers opportunities for unpaid internships meeting the
above requirements.
