Emerging Museum Education Fellowship

Applications are closed for the 2018-2019 fellowship. Please check back in Summer 2019 to apply next year.

The Hammer Museum’s Academic Programs Department offers a paid fellowship opportunity for an emerging museum educator during the academic year. The Emerging Museum Education Fellowship program aims to diversify the museum field and reduce barriers among recent college graduates from historically underrepresented groups from acquiring full-time entry-level jobs. The program aims to enrich professional skill-sets of emerging museum educators through on-the-job training, mentorship, and professional development.

The Fellow will work alongside Academic Programs staff in helping visitors of all ages make authentic and personally relevant connections to art, one another, and the world through close looking, dialogue, inquiry, and reflection. As an Emerging Museum Education Fellow, you will deepen your gallery teaching practice and gain in-depth experience developing and implementing tours and programs, especially for youth and family audiences. The Fellow will also learn about museum education theory and practice through ongoing professional development.
