Applicants should have a strong interest in women’s history, public history, or gender studies and the applications of these fields outside of academia.

Functioning within the Education Department as a research associate and providing programmatic and curatorial support to the Museum’s virtual education programs and online presence, the awardees will assist in the development of content for the Museum’s compendium of online learning resources, actively participate in associated virtual programming, and respond to research inquiries and interview requests from students, scholars, and the general public.

Fellows traditionally take the summer months of June, July, and August off from their duties at the Museum and resume work the Tuesday after Labor Day the following September.
