Spend the summer in Maine working to save historic buildings! Maine Preservation, a statewide nonprofit historic preservation organization, is offering four Summer Fellowship positions for students of historic preservation and related fields in conjunction with the preservation trades and professions. Fellowships span approximately nine weeks in the summer, split between 5 weeks hands-on site work with a trades firm and 4 weeks of organizational work at Maine Preservation’s headquarters at the historic Captain Reuben Merrill House (1858) in Yarmouth, about 10 miles north of Portland.

Benefits of a Summer Fellowship include introduction to the preservation field, both of the tangible applications of construction and repair, and of the program, policy and advocacy side of preservation. Fellows will be introduced to the preservation professionals community, policy makers, preservation consultants, supporters and donors, and allied organizations in the field. Fellows will gain important practical knowledge of how preservation businesses run and how preservation nonprofits function.

Applications due April 6 and fellowships will be announced April 20.
