Each year, thanks to the generous support of our donors and grantors, the Village welcomes early-career professionals from around the country to our yearlong fellowship program. Regardless of focus, all fellows get an in-depth opportunity to learn more about living history museums. As a living history site dedicated to the history of early 19th century rural New England, a major component of OSV’s mission is keeping traditional skills alive. Fellows will focus on a specific area working with an expert/mentor, areas include: Trades, Crafts, Households, Agriculture, Horticulture, and Costume Study & Production.
This yearlong immersive program will allow fellows to join a dedicated, passionate team of museum professionals delivering a range of educational programming to over 250,000 visitors a year. These positions are stipend and housing is provided as a part of the compensation.
Old Sturbridge Village does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, cultural heritage, political beliefs, national origin, language spoken, marital status, sexual orientation, special needs or disability.
