Announcing the 2016 AAM International Fellowship Program

Dear Colleague,


On behalf of the American Alliance of Museums (AAM), I am pleased to invite you to apply to the 2016 AAM international fellowship program. Fellowships, generously supported by the Getty Foundation, are offered to those who work with art collections in museums from emerging countries to attend the 2016 AAM Annual Meeting, held in Washington, DC, from May 26-29.


Attended by approximately 5,000 museum professionals from every U.S. state and more than 50 countries, the Annual Meeting is the largest gathering of museum professionals in the world. The 2016 conference, which will explore the theme of Power, Influence and Responsibility, will offer more than 150 thought-provoking sessions. The meeting also offers unparalleled networking opportunities and special events.


Each fellowship includes:

  • Full conference registration
  • A one-year individual AAM membership
  • A travel stipend for airfare and per diem
  • Up to five nights of hotel lodging at a conference hotel
  • An on-site orientation session exclusively for international fellows
  • An invitation to the AAM Fellows Breakfast
  • Participation in an on-site Leadership and Career Management Program
  • A copy of the publication A Life in Museums

Find instructions for applying to the fellowship program. Please note that those selected for fellowships will be required to attend the entire meeting, which begins on Thursday, May 26 and ends on Sunday, May 29. Fellows are also required to attend the orientation session and AAM Fellowship breakfast, participate in the on-site Leadership and Career Management Program and respond to an evaluation survey following the meeting.


All applications must be received by January 29, 2016. 


Applicants will be notified of their status via email by the end of February 2016.

I encourage those who meet the eligibility requirements to apply or to forward to colleagues you know who might be interested in the fellowship program.
