Fellowship Program

The Alliance is committed to cultivating diverse leaders across the field by providing access to professional development and networking opportunities offered at our Annual Meeting. Through the fellowship program, we aim to include your voice and the voices of those whose presence is greatly needed in discussions about field-wide issues. 

Getty Multicultural Internship Alumni Fellowships

Deadline: December 15, 2014

The Alliance and the Getty Foundation have partnered to provide a unique experience for alumni of the Getty’s Multicultural Undergraduate Internship program. This program reflects the Getty Foundation’s ongoing commitment to provide professional development opportunities to former participants of the internship program. With support from the Getty Foundation, fellowships are offered to attend the 2015 AAM Annual Meeting, held in Atlanta from April 26–29, and to participate in year-round professional development opportunities. Fellowships are available to Multicultural Undergraduate Internship Program alumni who reside in the United States and are currently active in the museum field or in museum-related graduate studies.

Application materials will be available in mid-November.

Alliance Member Fellowships Notification and Registration

Deadline: October 24, 2014

All Fellowship applicants will be notified by e-mail of their fellowship status prior to registration opening in January.

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. Fellows are expected to stay in the Alliance housing block for Atlanta. Housing information will be available later this fall.

Awardees will have a week to confirm their attendance. Once awardees have confirmed their attendance, they will receive a special registration code with instructions to receive their complimentary registration and are eligible to purchase additional event tickets not included or conflicting with other fellowship events.

Upon receipt of confirmation of acceptance and a signed IRS W-9 form (for U.S. Citizens) or W-8 for non-U.S. citizens, travel stipends will be issued to Alliance Professional and Student fellows. Please note this may take 2 to 4 weeks to arrive.

Fellowship awards are non-transferable.
