Nancy Campbell Internship in Historic Preservation

In honor and recognition of her national leadership in historic preservation, friends and family of Nancy Campbell, wife of former Wesleyan University President Colin Campbell, established this endowed grant fund.

The Nancy Campbell Internship in Historic Preservation supports experiential educational opportunities in the field of historic preservation for students with an interest and/or studies in related fields, such as public policy, communications, journalism, social activism/social justice, or history, architecture, urban planning, urban studies, or museum studies.

Past interns have worked in organizations such as the National Trust for Historic Preservation or local historical sites, working to research and compile case-studies on preservation- or sustainability-related topics; documenting the success of community revitalization programs; developing advocacy materials, or assisting in field surveys and community development organizing in older neighborhoods.

The intern must demonstrate strength in writing.

Up to $5,000 (per grant)
