Museum Education Fellowship Program

We invite promising young professionals to join our Museum Education Fellowship Program. As an Education Fellow in the Learning and Social Impact Division, you’ll gain in-depth fieldwork experience by designing, facilitating, and teaching programs that address the needs of adult, school, and teen and family audiences. Fellows participate in hands-on workshops and reading discussions, and conduct qualitative research throughout the year to learn about museum education theory and practice. Ongoing professional development, provided by our experienced education and curatorial staff, ensures that Education Fellows leave the program with extensive experience teaching and programming for a wide variety of audiences, and with a completed professional teaching portfolio. Please see below for complete descriptions of the six available positions for the 2023–24 academic year.

Program alumni have pursued careers at such cultural institutions as the Denver Art Museum; Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art, Qatar; Metropolitan Museum of Art; National Museum of the American Indian; New Museum; and Queens Museum of Art, as well as the New York City Department of Education and the School District of Philadelphia. 

Salary: $27 per hour, or $39,690 across ten months (subject to payroll taxes), plus benefits

Start and end dates: The Fellowship is ten months long, running from September 5, 2023, to June 21, 2024, and is open to individuals who have recently completed undergraduate or graduate studies or those who have commensurate experience preferably in fine arts, art history, cultural studies, education, and other humanities. Candidates from other academic backgrounds are welcome to apply.
