Stipend: $600 per week.

Preserve Montana and the Helena-Lewis and Clark National Forest are pleased to offer a 5-week internship to 3 students in the summer of 2023. Funded through the Forest’s Resource Advisory Committee grant program, this project will provide training to students in field research, interpretation, and stewardship models with experienced cultural resource surveys, testing, and monitoring of archeological sites.

The internship features an immersive archeological field experience in the Big Belt Mountains on the Helena-Lewis and Clark National Forest, and introductions to public history professionals and cultural resource data work in Helena. Education or experience in anthropology/archeology or a closely related field, along with familiarity with computer technologies for recording digital information, is a must.

Applicants must be 21 years of age and have a valid driver’s license. The job requires interns to be in good physical condition with the ability to hike and carry a backpack; backcountry camping will be involved. Interns must furnish their own camping equipment and be prepared with appropriate clothing and gear for working in the mountains in the summertime.
