The Montpelier Archaeology Department offers a limited number of competitive paid and unpaid internship positions during the summer and winter months. Taking the Montpelier field school is a requirement for the paid internship. We do have unpaid intern positions for participants who have taken one of our expeditions and are interested in staying on for a long set of field and laboratory experiences.
For our paid internships, most field school students who are interested in taking an internship often stay for one or two months following the field school. In many cases, students that have graduated the Spring prior to the field school will elect to take a longer internship that runs into the winter. With all of our internships, we make every effort to advise interns on career development and provide opportunities for resume building. This opportunity is incredibly unique: interns work in the field and lab for their entire time, receiving valuable experience in excavation techniques, site analysis, and public archaeology.
Interns are also provided with free housing at the Arlington House, in return for their maintanence and care of the building during and after our public Expedition Programs!
