The U.S. Forest Service (FS) and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) seek two Faculty Advisors currently working for Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs) to assist in implementing the 2023 Cultural Heritage in the Forest (CHIF) summer program.

CHIF is a paid, four-week educational internship for 8-12 HBCU students interested in historic preservation or history-related fields. The goal of the program is to prepare HBCU students for future careers in cultural resources management, historic preservation, archaeology, history, and related careers, bringing diversity into these traditionally nondiverse fields. Much of the program takes place on Forest Service lands, and educational activities are primarily facilitated by the FS and the ACHP.

Candidates should currently be teaching at an HBCU, in fields related to history, historic preservation, or social justice; have preferably three or more years of experience in academic teaching, advising, and/or coaching; demonstrate experience in leading students in immersive educational or travel programs; and be able to provide proof of eligibility to work in the United States, possess a valid driver’s license, and be comfortable driving for several hours.

Application period closes March 24, 2023.
