Peabody Essex Museum
2022 PEM Summer Native American Fellowship
Eligibility: Our program is open to students or in-service professionals who are of Native American, Native Hawaiian, Alaska Native, or First Nations background. To establish eligibility, applicants provide their tribal or community affiliation in the application. Because this is a leadership training fellowship rather than an internship, priority is given to graduate students and in-service professionals.
We are thrilled to announce the opening of the application period for our 2022 Native American Summer Fellowship (NAF) Program! We are looking for talented and creative students and emerging professionals from Native American, Native Hawaiian, First Nation 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 the Peabody Essex Museum’s (PEM) 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. Placements will be based on applicant’s academic and/or career goals, their application, the interview process and the match between Fellows’ interests and available projects. Previous department placements have included Curatorial, Development, Creative Services, Collection Management, Exhibition Research and Publishing, Merchandising and Marketing. Fellowship includes stipend, housing near PEM and travel expenses. Academic credit is available upon official request.
