SCHOLARS PROGRAM FOR TEENS
Historians and art historians regularly come to the New-York Historical Society to conduct research. Now, Teen Scholars have the chance to do the same! This multi-session program is designed for high school students (grades 9–12) who have a passion for American history and an interest in developing their research skills. Teen Scholars during spring sessions will explore current exhibitions at the Museum. Teen Scholars during summer sessions will conduct research on topics of their choice in the print, manuscript, and photograph collections in our Klingenstein Library and publish their work online.
Spring: March – April, Saturdays, 10 am – 1 pm
Summer: August, Monday – Friday, 10 am – 1 pm
Specific dates will be posted when applications become available.
