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. 

International Fellowships

Deadline: TBD

The American Alliance of Museums and the Getty Foundation have partnered to provide a unique experience for non-U.S. museum professionals. With support from the Getty Foundation, fellowships are offered to attend the 2015 AAM Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo, held in Atlanta from April 26–29, and to participate in year-round professional development opportunities. Fellowships are available to museum professionals working in art museums from countries with developing or emerging economies.

Alliance Member Fellowships Notification and Registration

Deadline: November 9, 2015

All Fellowship applicants will be notified by e-mail of their fellowship status by January 15, 2016. 

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 Washington, DC. Housing information will be available 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.
