Four graduate students from across the United States have been awarded the 2017 Edward W. Pell Graduate Fellowships at Fort Ticonderoga.
This program runs from June 12 to August 18 and will provide the students with practical, hands-on experience, working with the staff on cutting-edge programs and research.
This year’s Fellows will help lay the ground work for exhibitions, programs, and educational initiatives to be offered to the public in 2018.
This year’s Fellows are:
Theresa Ball, a graduate student in Museology and Library/Information Science at the University of Washington. Originally from Maine, Teri received her undergraduate degree at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and plans to pursue a career in curation and exhibit design with archives, special collections, and historic sites.
Anna Faherty, pursuing a dual degree at Simmons College in Archives and History. Her academic interests include American and European history of the mid- to late nineteenth century, labor history, and immigration history.

Kathryn Kaslow is working on her master’s in Public History at the University of South Carolina. She earned her undergraduate degree at Messiah College and plans to work in interpretation and education at museums or historic sites.
The Edward W. Pell Graduate Fellowship program was launched in 2015.
