Fort Ticonderoga offers four graduate fellowships for students seeking a practical, hands-on internship experience at a historic site and museum with cutting-edge programs. Positions available June 13-August 12, 2016, include internships in Exhibitions, Interpretation, Horticulture, and Education. Fort Ticonderoga seeks graduate students in museum studies, museum education, public history, history, public horticulture, American studies, or military history.
