The American Alliance of Museums is offering fellowships to its Annual Meeting for Alliance Professional and Student members who are:

            underrepresented* within the profession

            emerging leaders

            mid-career professionals

*This includes individuals who identify with one or more of the following underrepresented groups: racial/ethnic minorities, persons with disabilities and LGBT. 

Note: Individuals must be Alliance members at the time of application.

Fellows are required attend the entire meeting and participate in fellowship-related activities, such as the Fellowship breakfast and those ticketed events accompanying the award.

Fellowships awarded to Alliance Professional and Student members includes complimentary conference registration and selected ticketed events and a $750 cash award to cover travel expenses.

How to Apply

Eligible individuals are invited to submit an application. Fellows will be selected from among a competitive and talented pool of peers. Unfortunately, because of limited funds we cannot accommodate all applicants.

Individuals who have previously been awarded a fellowship to attend the Annual Meeting are not eligible.

Applications are due Friday, Feb. 10.  Incomplete or late applications will not be considered.

Fellowship awardees will be notified by email no later than March 31 and will have a week to confirm their attendance. Once awardees have confirmed their attendance, they will receive a special registration code for complimentary registration and can purchase additional event tickets not included in the fellowship award. Upon receipt of confirmation and signed IRS W-9 form, travel stipends will be issued to Alliance Professional and Student fellows and may take 2 to 4 weeks to arrive. 

Applicants who are not awarded a fellowship and would still like to attend the meeting may register at the published Early Bird rate until the Advance Registration deadline, April 25. Instructions for how to register will be included with your notification email.
