Paul Revere Memorial Association Short-Term Research Fellowship in Black History or Indigenous History


In preparation for our celebrations of the 250th anniversary of the American Revolution, the Paul Revere Memorial Association seeks proposals for short-term research fellowships on topics related to Black or Indigenous history in Boston’s North End neighborhood. We are currently accepting proposals for research that will take place in the summer of 2024 or in the 2024-2025 academic year.

The Paul Revere Memorial Association (PRMA) owns and operates the Paul Revere House Museum and an adjacent visitor center, and our site includes buildings from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. The PRMA will use the research to enrich our interpretation of our properties for the general public, our school programs and teacher resources, and our adult programs. This may include updates to our on-site interpretation, blog posts, articles for our quarterly newsletter and our website. The researcher would be encouraged to work with the Association in developing some of these products.

Due to the upcoming 250th anniversary of the American Revolution and the 400th of the founding of Boston, we are especially interested in proposals related to the period between 1600 and 1800. However, proposals related to any time period will be considered. Between the three buildings on our site, we interpret extant residences that were lived in from the 17th through mid- 20th centuries. We are interested in projects that would shed light either the general population or specific individuals in the North End or on our site.

The fellow would be awarded $6,000 for eight weeks of full-time research or the equivalent amount of part-time research over a longer period of time. We will also consider proposals for a longer or shorter project, with the award pro-rated as appropriate. Limited information may be available in the PRMA’s own collections, including information from previous archaeological excavations of the site, but the bulk of research is likely to be in other institutions’ collections. The physical location of the fellowship (remote or on-site) is flexible dependent on research needs.

Apply by March 1 for priority consideration; proposals will be considered on a rolling basis after this date. To apply, please send a CV and a letter of interest to Tegan Kehoe, Research and Adult Program Director, at The letter should be one to three pages and describe the topic or research question, and how this project will advance your career or your larger research goals. If your research is informed by your own relationship to a group that you study, we encourage you to include this information.

We welcome proposals from academic or public historians at any stage of career, including current students who have completed at least an M.A. degree. We strive to be an inclusive organization at all levels, and welcome proposals from scholars who identify as part of groups that are underrepresented in the history and museum fields.


Summer Internship


The Paul Revere House is looking for undergraduate or graduate students interested in internships for the Summer 2024 semester. Interns will participate in most day-to-day site activities (interacting with the public, speaking to school groups, curatorial duties as needed) and complete a research or other project determined by prior agreement between the intern and the Revere House internship supervisor. Projects can relate to Paul Revere, Boston in the American Revolution, or the history of the house or the North End neighborhood. Examples of past project topics include Patriots’ use of Mohawk imagery, slavery in colonial Boston, and immigrant women’s social clubs in the early twentieth century.

Internships are unpaid and preference is given to applicants planning to do their internship for academic credit. Internships are typically 10-20 hours a week, with the number of weeks to be agreed upon before the internship starts. Typically, all work is on site. Most of the site is wheelchair-accessible and we will work with interns to ensure all accessibility needs are met.

Preferred qualifications: coursework or experience in history, museums, or a related field; comfort working with the public. We strive to be an inclusive organization at all levels, and welcome applications from candidates who identify as part of groups that are underrepresented in the history and museum fields.

To apply: Send resume and cover letter to Tegan Kehoe, Research and Adult Program Director, at by end of day March 25th. Please include “Summer 2024 internship” in the subject line.
