Robert and Nancy Hall Fellowship Program
The Hall Fellowship Program provides undergraduate and graduate students at Johns Hopkins with an opportunity to gain a substantive understanding of the museum profession and to contribute to the work of the Walters Art Museum, one of the finest art museums in the nation. The program is primarily intended for fellows who will work on one or more specific projects in the Division of Curatorial Affairs or the Division of Education, but students may also be assigned to the following divisions: Exhibitions; Development; Marketing and Communications; and Director’s Office.
For fellows working in the Division of Curatorial Affairs, one of the Walters curators will serve as mentor. Fellows assigned to another division will work under the direction of the appropriate staff member. Fellows may be asked to make an oral presentation to interested students, faculty, and curators at the end of the term, and may have the opportunity to expand on their work in the form of interpretative materials, publication, or other media, according to the needs of the Walters.
Four fellows are to be appointed each year: two in the summer and two during the academic year. Fellows must be students enrolled in a full-time undergraduate or graduate program on the Homewood campus of The Johns Hopkins University (spring 2013 graduates are not eligible). Students must have some background in the history of art and other areas as appropriate. Summer fellows are employed full-time (35 hours a week) at the Walters for 10 weeks and will receive a stipend of $4,900, or $14 an hour. Term Fellows are employed 10-15 hours per week (the exact number to be determined in each individual case) for the 13-week term and are also paid $14 per hour. Additional project and travel funds may be available at the supervisor’s discretion.
Participants in the Hall Fellowship Program are not eligible to receive academic credit. Students are eligible to receive up to two Hall Fellowships during the period they are enrolled at Johns Hopkins.
