The Julie Linsdell and Georgia Linsdell Enders Research Fellowship
The Nichols House Museum, located on Boston’s historic Beacon Hill, is pleased to offer the Julie Linsdell and Georgia Linsdell Enders Research Fellowship.

Other proposed topics related to the museum’s educational mission are encouraged. The fellow will work with staff of the Nichols House Museum and at area archives to undertake and complete the research project in the time allotted. At the conclusion of the fellowship, a final research paper must be completed for use by museum staff, and a public presentation of research findings is required. This 175 hour, 6-8 week position comes with a stipend of $2,500, and begins and ends during the summer of 2016 at mutually agreed upon dates.
