Sponsor the Bidwell History Fellowship
The Bidwell House Museum offers a History Fellowship to a recent college graduate during the summer. The Fellow lives onsite in a small apartment and acts as the head docent of museum tours. The Fellowship allows for hands-on experience in visitor services, intern management, and museum operations. This is a great opportunity for a new museum professional or recent graduate.
The Bidwell House Museum is a 1760s New England heritage site providing through its land, house, and collection a personal encounter with early settler life in Berkshire County. The museum includes the fully furnished colonial homestead, several outbuildings and 192 acres of grounds with gardens, stone walls, foundations and hiking trails.
The History Fellow lives in a small apartment located at the Bidwell House Museum during the summer when the museum is open to the public. The Fellow acts as the head docent of the museum and manages the Young History Scholar Interns. The History Fellow will also work on a summer-long research project about colonial history that will be presented to the public at the end of the fellowship.
