Fellowship opportunity: Native American Fellowship

Native American Fellowship

Apply now for an 11-week, full-time, paid fellowship at the Peabody Essex Museum (PEM). February 10 is the deadline.

PEM seeks rising leaders in the museum field and nonprofit cultural sector for our exciting, newly Native American Fellowship Program. We are looking for graduate students and emerging cultural professionals of Native American, Native Hawaiian, or Alaska Native backgrounds who are eager to develop the knowledge, skills and networks necessary to become 21st-century community and museum leaders.

Fellows work with PEM’s dynamic staff and gain access to a comprehensive perspective on the theory and practice of museum management. Weekly workshops, field trips, mentoring and in-depth engagement on museum projects support Fellows in sustaining their existing skills while cultivating their professional development needs.

Program offers stipend, housing and travel expenses. Academic credit is available upon official request.

Description of the program and all required application materials can be accessed at: http://pem.org/about/_employment/internships_fellowships/
