The National Park Service (NPS) South Atlantic-Gulf Region seeks a motivated individual with an interest in applied cultural anthropology to support the region’s Cultural Anthropology Program.

Additional work could include supporting Cultural Anthropology Program projects and goals; attending consultation meetings with tribes and other traditionally associated groups; and updating tribal contacts and areas of interest. This internship covers 930 hours of work.
