Apply Now for 2019 ACHP-Smithsonian Fellowship (Advisory Council on Historic Preservation)
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Internship, Fellowship, Washington, DC, cultural heritage, intangible heritage
Contributed By: Susan Glimcher

All researchers and historic preservationists may apply to join the ACHP and Smithsonian Institution this fall in a Cultural Heritage Fellowship. The application deadline is Sunday, June 16, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. EDT.

The 2019 fellowship theme is Music Heritage of the District of Columbia. 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 encouraged to apply. The Smithsonian Institution could very well be the world’s largest museum of music, with more than 16,000 musical instruments, 100,000 pages of sheet music, 80,000 recorded music tracks, and approximately 400 musical activities per year.

The place-based cultural heritage fellowship will consist of a research project, which 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.

Research proposals may touch on particular neighborhoods, communities, festivals, or other relevant areas. To apply, a project proposal must be submitted, including research goals and the proposed historic site or historic district, which must be on or eligible for the National Register of Historic Places within the DC region.

Applicants are encouraged to contact Susan Glimcher of the ACHP (sglimcher@achp.gov) and Meredith Holmgren at the Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage (holmgrenm@si.edu) to discuss and help shape the proposed project in relationship to the agency’s work.

Visit https://www.smithsonianofi.com/achp-fellowship for full details about the fellowship and how to apply.
