Two internships will run in 2015, one at the African World Heritage Fund (AWHF) in Midrand (South Africa) and one at EPA in Porto-Novo (Benin). AWHF was launched in 2006 to support African State Parties in implementing the UNESCO Convention on the protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage.

Two interns will be selected to take part in 2 separate internships. Applicants include students (graduate), professionals or members of natural/cultural heritage and academic institutions (not necessarily within the heritage sector). Applicants must be 30 years of age or below. The project is open to participants from all African countries.
