Interning with the Antiquities Coalition


About the Program

The Antiquities Coalition internship program provides students with an opportunity to research, write, and develop projects in the field of cultural heritage with an emphasis on archaeology, anthropology, criminology, foreign affairs, and national and international law and governance. Our specialists conduct research on today’s prominent questions concerning all aspects of the illicit trade in cultural heritage and other crimes via art and artifacts. Interns obtain guidance, experience, and exposure to policy and scholarly communities while developing professional skills.

All internships are conducted virtually at this time. We regret that we are unable to offer any salary, but are happy to work with your university to coordinate academic credit whenever possible.
