Fellowships:

Our May Kean Raynolds Graduate Museum Studies Fellow is offered to graduate students enrolled in a master’s program in Museum Studies, History, or a related field. The fellowship is designed to provide a mentored professional development opportunity with the objective of encouraging graduate students to explore careers within a museum setting.  The fellow will assist in the design, development, and delivery of innovative programming for diverse audiences of all ages with the goal of strengthening the relationship between the museum and its surrounding communities.  Additionally, the fellow will aid in designing and implementing marketing strategies for the museum’s educational programming.

Fellows will work approximately 20 hours per week over the course of the 30-week fellowship.  Work hours are flexible and will be scheduled during museum operating hours.  The fellowship will begin in November 2022 and continue through July 2023. The museum is easily accessed by New Jersey Transit trains on the Raritan Valley line.
