Internship Program

Sharing the heritage advocacy to the youth.

ICOMOS Philippines is investing in getting students and emerging professionals, from diverse backgrounds, interested in heritage. ICOMOS’ programs challenge interns to apply their current skills, honed further by close mentorship from members, to partake in solving preservation problems.


Research internships are offered to students and emerging professionals from different fields of study. Students receive close mentorship by ICOMOS members through their individualised fields of study to complete a national baseline study of the practice, policy, spending and economic impact of heritage in the Philippines.

The ICOMOS Philippines Internship Program formally opened in 2018, and will continue until 2022.
