Announcment: ACHP-Smithsonian Cultural Heritage Fellowship

In honor of the Smithsonian Year of Music, the theme of this year’s ACHP-Smithsonian Cultural Heritage Fellowship is “Music Heritage of the District of Columbia”. This place-based, cultural heritage fellowship will consist of a research project that highlights the integration of historic sites and museum collections to tell fuller stories about the development, impact, and role of music in the history and heritage of DC, specifically as it relates to historic places. Those with an interest in learning more about the preservation of historic sites, intangible heritage, and artifacts within and around the nation’s capital as they relate to the preservation of music are especially encouraged to apply.

Deadline extended to June 23 (by 11:59). The fellowship will take place over 12 weeks, between September and December of 2019, in Washington, D.C. For further details, please view the official listing on the Office of Fellowships and Internships website.
