The Louis Armstrong House Museum (LAHM) is delighted to announce that the application period for the second year of the LAHM Museum Fellows Program is currently open! Your students are encouraged to apply by January 31, 2018 for the 10-month Fellowship that will begin September 1, 2018. Two Fellowships will be awarded with a stipend of $30,000 for each Fellow.

The Louis Armstrong Museum Fellows program introduces students who attend or have recently graduated from Historically Black Colleges and Universities to the variety of careers available in the museum field. The goal of the LAHM Fellowship is to educate and train the Fellows in the museum, archives, and education fields as it applies to the functioning of a non-profit historic house. They will be given long-term projects in addition to everyday staff responsibilities. Under the guidance of LAHM staff, they will attend networking events and be introduced to others in the fields of arts education, archives management, and curatorial studies.

We are currently in the midst of the first year of the Fellowship, with Deja Patterson (Tougaloo) and Jayson Overby (Morehouse). You can read about what they’ve been up to on the Fellows blog (https://louisarmstrongfellowsblog.wordpress.com/).
