Apply to the Special Collections Student Docent Program today!

Our goal is to recruit UGA students who are committed to leading engaging tours of the Special Collections Building's exhibit galleries for visitors of all ages. Participants in the program will develop skills in archival research, public speaking, and community outreach. They will also gain valuable work experience in both archive and museum settings.

Students accepted to the program will complete a five week training program (10 hours) to learn about the collections on display, as well as techniques for creating custom tour stops and gallery games. Applicants who complete the initial training will have the opportunity to earn a $1000 summer stipend, to research and write tour scripts (100 hours) and be paid to lead tours of the Special Collections Building. 

The application deadline is Friday, February 15. To apply, visit our application page.
