Application Deadline EXTENDED: MAY 1, 2018
The Association of African American Museums (AAAM) invites you to apply for one of two fellowships to assist students and emerging museum professionals in attending the 40th Annual AAAM Conference. The Margaret T. G. Burroughs and Charles H. Wright Fellowship honors the founders of the Association of African American Museums by recognizing emerging museum professionals demonstrating excellence in interpretation and preservation of African American and African diaspora history, art, and culture.
Two awards are granted for top applicants - one senior-level undergraduate or graduate student, and one first year museum professional. Applicants are to submit an essay outlining their contributions to the African American and/or African diaspora museum field. Burroughs-Wright Fellowship recipients receive full conference registration for the 2018 AAAM Annual Conference in Hampton, VA, three night hotel accommodations at the conference hotel (August 8 - 10), and a one year individual membership to the Association of African American Museums.
