William Randolph Hearst Fellowship 2016 May 31-July 29, 2016
The Mount Vernon Hotel Museum and Garden (MVHMG) offers two summer Fellowships for undergraduate or graduate students interested in U.S. history, museum studies, museum education, material culture or other related fields. Fellows participate directly in the daily operations of a historic site. Fellows complete original research projects on antebellum NYC that become interpretation resources, conduct tours, and participate in programs for children and adults. Now in its thirty-second year, the full-time Fellowship, funded by the William Randolph Hearst Foundation, consists of nine weeks with a $2,750 stipend. Hours are 9AM-5PM Monday-Friday, with occasional evenings for special events. Fellows are responsible for their own housing and transportation.
Further information and application forms will be available in the history department office.
