Graduate Fellowships

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 10–August 16, 2019, include research fellowships in Exhibitions, Education, and Collections.

Qualifications

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.

Details

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 Fort Ticonderoga’s professional staff as part of our team-approach to all major projects. Professional development opportunities during the fellowships will include visits from outside scholars and field trips. In general, project-specific work will encompass about 50% of the fellow’s 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.

Stipends

Each graduate fellow will receive a $2,500 stipend plus housing on-site.
