REPORTS TO: Director of Museum Experience

WORK SCHEDULE: TBD; Flexible; Summer-Fall 2022

LOCATION(S): Gaylord-Pickens Museum and offsite location(s)

COMPENSATION: $30.00 per hour, Bonus available

Gaylord-McCasland Teacher Fellows will be awarded a stipend up to $3,000, depending on project, distributed as income at $30 per hour to cover expenses, including travel and lodging. Up to an additional $250-500 will be awarded as bonuses upon completion of projects. Further, Fellows are encouraged, but not required, to bring their students to the Oklahoma Hall of Fame for a field trip. Funds to cover admission fees and transportation are provided; substitute stipends are available upon request.

Gaylord-McCasland Teacher Fellows are recognized at the annual spring Scholarship Awards Ceremony at the Gaylord-Pickens Museum. Attendance is strongly encouraged. Family and friends are invited to attend as well.

The Gaylord-McCasland Fellowship is open to all certified Oklahoma teachers, engaging with students of any age. Applicants may be affiliated with Oklahoma public, private, or charter schools. Fellows will be selected on the basis of how well their experience and interests match current available projects. Applicants must select from available projects—choosing the project that best fits his/her strengths, interests, experience, and availability—as some projects require a longer commitment and projects have different commencement/completion dates.

To support completion of projects, Fellows will have access to the Oklahoma Hall of Fame archives and galleries. Fellows will be provided a workstation with computer; schedules are flexible with some hours being completed offsite upon approval.

Fellows work under the direction of the Director of Museum Experience, but may also work with the Outreach Program Coordinator, the Manager of Museum Experience, and the Archives Manager and Registrar. Access to Oklahoma Hall of Fame Members, or representatives, may be possible for research purposes upon request.
