Archaeological conservation internship
Summer 2003

The Smithsonian Center for Materials Research and Education (SCMRE)
and the Office of Fellowships announce several internship
opportunities in archaeological conservation with projects in
Guatemala.  The internships are a component of SCMRE's
Archaeological Conservation Program, which seeks to foster the
integration of conservation and archaeological research through
collaborative materials-based studies, collections care training,
and fieldwork participation.

The internship duration is approximately 8 weeks (June - August
2003). Funding is available to cover air fare from the continental
US, and the project(s) will cover on-site lodging and most on-site
meal costs.  A small living allowance is provided by SCMRE, which
can be used to supplement any other funds available to the
applicant.
