Highlights of FHS’ 2019 Student Program

Student Exchange Program

Throughout the past 35 years, the Student Exchange Program has been at the heart of French Heritage Society’s mission to educate future leaders in preservation by offering 4 to 8 week summer internship opportunities to young horticulture and art history majors at historical sites on both sides of the Atlantic. In 2019 we are proud to have selected and supported 14 American and 18 French students who benefitted from career-changing placements with our longstanding partners.
