The Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach is proud to offer a six-week summer internship program for undergraduate and graduate students of architecture and historic preservation. The internship program is named in honor of the late Anthony K. Baker, a dedicated advocate of historic preservation, history and architecture, throughout the United States.
The Anthony K. Baker Internship Program incorporates a multi-faceted approach to providing experiences related to the field of historic preservation. Interning students will be exposed to challenging, professional opportunities while working in the offices of leading architectural, interior, and landscape design firms. They will assist preservation planners in both the Town of Palm Beach and the City of West Palm Beach with documentation of historic properties and participate in current urban planning and design projects. Interns will attend architectural and preservation commission meetings and learn more about the inner workings of the Preservation Foundation. The program will culminate in the completion of an annual project addressing a pertinent town preservation issue. A detailed schedule will be assigned at the start of the program.
Housing will be provided at a landmarked Addison Mizner designed apartment building located in historic Phipps Plaza, the locale for architects and designers of both past and present. The fully-equipped apartment is centrally located and within walking distance of the Foundation’s headquarters. A $1,000 stipend is included with the internship.
