Fort Ticonderoga is seeking applicants for the 2017 Edward W. Pell Graduate Fellowship Program, a program designed for students seeking a practical, hands-on internship experience at a historic site and museum with cutting-edge programs.
The Fellowships run from June 12 to August 18, 2017, and include opportunities in Education, Exhibitions, Collections Management, and Interpretation.
This year’s Fellows will be helping lay the groundwork for exhibitions, programs, and educational initiatives to be offered to the public in 2018. Participants are expected to be self-motivated and able to work independently, as well as contribute to the team creating and developing exhibitions and programs for a diverse audience.
Successful applicants for the two-month Fellowship will receive a $2,500 stipend along with on-site housing. Graduate students and qualified undergraduates interested in learning more details and applying should visit Fort Ticonderoga’s website. Applications are due February 1, 2017.
The Edward W. Pell Graduate Fellowship Program was launched in 2015 and has included eight students from the following universities over the past two summers: Connecticut College, New York University, North Carolina State University, Stony Brook University, Texas State University, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and Western Michigan University.
The Edward W. Pell Graduate Fellowships at Fort Ticonderoga are made possible with the support from the Edward W. Pell Education Endowment at Fort Ticonderoga and generous individual donors.
