Native American Summer Fellowship at IUMAA
The Indiana University Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology (IUMAA) in Bloomington, Indiana invites Native American applications for a summer fellowship in museum studies, curation, exhibition, or museum management.
The IUMAA features the collections of the former Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology and the Mathers Museum of World Cultures, which merged to offer an expansive and integrated museum of world cultures past and present. We seek a fellow to work alongside professional museum staff to utilize archaeological and ethnographic collections for research, documentation, digitization, and future exhibitions.
This fellowship is open to all Native peoples from anywhere in North America, although preference will be given to college students. Native status documentation should be provided by either (a) tribal enrollment certification or (b) a statement outlining Native ancestry and community involvement.
The IUMAA archaeological and ethnographic collections are among the largest in the midcontinent, and feature a wide array of objects, artifacts, maps, and associated records. The museum features over 2 million artifacts and data from the Angel Mounds Site near Evansville, Indiana, and over 30,000 ethnographic pieces from across the world. Having been offsite for the past 18 months, we are now moving back into a renovated facility and planning for new programs and exhibitions for the museum's opening in 2023.
