Sallie B. Phillips Archival Internship

Body

The Sallie B. Phillips Archival Scholarship provides future archivists with the opportunity to gain firsthand experience working with special collections. Ms. Phillips is a longtime Trustee of the Foundation and graciously underwrote the digitization of the organization's architectural collections.

The Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach is looking for graduate and undergraduate students enrolled in a degree-seeking program in Public History, Library and Information Science, or Historic Preservation to participate in a six-week program this summer. The Foundation is a private, nonprofit membership organization dedicated to the preservation of the historic, architectural, and cultural heritage of Palm Beach, Florida. The Foundation’s mission is to encourage the community to learn about and save the historic buildings that truly make Palm Beach special.

Interns will be exposed to challenging, professional opportunities while working in the archives of the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach. Interns will learn to properly store, preserve, digitize, and restore architectural renderings, rare photographic materials, and other special collections items.
