Museum Diversity Fellowships at the Adirondack Experience

 June 2 – August 10, 2019

The Adirondack Experience (ADKX) in Blue Mountain Lake, New York invites applicants for its inaugural 10-week summer diversity fellowship program beginning June 2, 2019. The museum is dedicated to expanding the public understanding of Adirondack history and the relationship between people and the Adirondack wilderness, fostering informed choices for the future.

 

Located in the heart of the Adirondacks, the museum is a popular destination; visitors are drawn from the rural region’s resident population as well as from the millions of vacationers that visit the Adirondacks each year.

This program is specially designed for college students from communities that have been historically underrepresented in arts organizations because of educational and economic disadvantage and ethnic background. As the core component of this program, the museum will host six fellows who are interested in pursuing careers in the museum field. ADKX offers a unique opportunity for students to learn in an incomparable setting and to develop a better understanding of the range of professional museum careers that are available to students from all academic disciplines.

Applications due by March 31, 2019.
