Fort Ticonderoga offers four graduate fellowships for students seeking a practical, hands-on internship experience at a historic site and museum with cutting-edge programs. Positions available June 12-August 18, 2017, include research fellowships that include topics in Exhibitions, Interpretation, Education, and Collections.
Fort Ticonderoga seeks graduate students in museum studies, art history, decorative arts, museum education, public history, history, American studies, or military history. Fellows will need to be self-motivated and able to work independently as well as contribute to a dedicated team to create and develop ground-breaking exhibitions and programs for a diverse audience. Qualified undergraduates are welcome to apply.
While working individually with their project supervisors, fellows will also meet and work together throughout the two-month experience. Fellows will have an opportunity to work with the Forts professional staff as part of our team-approach to all major projects. Professional development opportunities during the internships will include visits from outside scholars and field trips. In general, project-specific work will encompass about 50% of the fellows time. The remaining half will be taken up with day-to-day tasks in their department, providing a wide-ranging experience working at a historic site and museum.
Each Graduate Fellow will receive a $2,500 stipend plus housing on-site.
