Fellowship Opportunity: Post-Graduate Education Fellowship, Peabody Essex Museum, Salem, MA

The Peabody Essex Museum is pleased to announce a new post-graduate education fellowship for 2018, funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Beginning in March 2018, this nine-month fellowship will provide support to the research, development and implementation of programs in the museum’s Education Department. The Native American Mellon Education Fellow is fully integrated into the Education Department as a full-time staff member. 

PEM’s award-winning Education Department manages partnerships with schools, youth organizations, community partners and educators. PEM is committed to re-envisioning the approaches to audience engagement with the museum through programming. The Education Department is currently undergoing a complete evaluation of all of our programming strategies and will begin to pilot new types of experiences through public programming and education programs in 2018. Of particular focus are experiences that authentically support creativity, curiosity and holistic engagement. Furthermore, the Education Department would like to examine current approaches to support new audiences, including the development of a major initiative that will focus on the intersection of schools and museums for underserved students. The Fellow will serve a significant role in the research, development and implementation of this work in 2018.
