GAYLORD-McCASLAND TEACHER FELLOWSHIP at the Gaylord-Pickens Museum, home of the Oklahoma Hall of Fame

The fellowship application is currently closed, but applicants are accepted each Spring and Fall. The below position description is included and previous projects can be viewed on the Teacher Fellowship Projects page.

  • REPORTS TO: Manager of Museum Education and Outreach
  • 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 Oklahoma Hall of Fame for a field trip. Funds to cover admission fees, and transportation or lunch are provided; substitute stipends are available upon request.

Gaylord-McCasland Teacher Fellows are recognized at the annual spring Scholarship Awards Ceremony, following completion of their project, at the Gaylord-Pickens Museum, home of the Oklahoma Hall of Fame. Attendance is strongly encouraged. Family and friends are invited to attend.

The Gaylord-McCasland Teacher 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.

Fellows work under the direction of the Manager of Museum Education and Outreach, but may also work with the Director of Museum Experience, and the Archive Administrator. To support completion of projects, Fellows will have access to the Oklahoma Hall of Fame archives and galleries. Access to Oklahoma Hall of Fame Members, or representatives, may be possible for research purposes upon request.
