College Internship Program
LAMP and the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Museum, Inc. have created an internship program for undergraduate and graduate students interested in maritime history and underwater archaeology. Over the past seven years, LAMP has sponsored undergraduate and graduate students from University of North Florida, Flagler College, University of Florida, University of West Florida, State University of New York, UCLA and other colleges from across the U.S. The opportunity for college students to work side-by-side with professional archaeologists, archaeological conservators and museum and educational specialists is a valuable one that can lead to a career in any of these exciting fields. At the same time, the participation of these students is vital for LAMP, as they provide the hard work and enthusiasm that is necessary to carry out our mission of research and education. Depending on student interests and experience, interns may choose to work in the laboratory conserving artifacts, drafting or conducting archaeological analysis. Or they might join LAMP’s scientific diving team and assist archaeologists as they conduct archaeology underwater. Non-diving participants can still assist in fieldwork by serving as surface support for divers, sorting through screens during excavation or by operating remote sensing equipment during the search for undiscovered sites. Internships focusing on educational activities or museum management and exhibit design are also available.
