Support AAM Scholars on Giving Tuesday

Support AAM Scholars on Giving Tuesday

The American Alliance of Museums is participating in Giving Tuesday, the global day of giving taking place on November 27.

Our goal is to bring 5 to 10 more scholars to the 2019 Alliance Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo in New Orleans. This year, 30 national AAM Scholars received free registration to our conference in Phoenix, access to networking events, and a cash award to subsidize their expenses. For many it was the first time attending this premiere learning experience that enriched and inspired their work. What if we could bring 35 or 40 to New Orleans in 2019?

Your donation will help nurture the next generation of museum leaders who are so vital to the flourishing of the museum field.

Think of the impact on these individuals and the world. For museums to be truly inclusive they must have leadership with diverse perspectives that reflects the communities they serve. The Alliance Scholarship Program creates opportunities for future leaders—especially women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ community, and other underrepresented populations—to become inspired, ambitious, empowered, and confident. You can help make this a reality and help us advance the careers of these scholars, making museums—and the world—better.

Meet four AAM Scholars from 1997, 2005, and 2018 and read more about the impact of the scholarship from alumni James Burns and Jeanine Pollard!

100% of donations on Giving Tuesday go towards the Alliance Scholarship Program.
Now is the time to advance change and invest in museums.
