Exhibit Professionals Conference Fellowship, Sponsored by Museum EXP

AMM and Museum EXP are excited to announce our first-ever Exhibit Professionals Conference Fellowship! The fellowship was created to support the advancement of museum professionals working in exhibit disciplines (design, development, etc.), and we will be awarding an all-inclusive experience to one Midwest exhibit professional in 2024, thanks to support from Museum EXP and The Emporium, their awesome exhibit merch site!

The Exhibit Professionals Conference Fellowship includes:

  • Complimentary Virtual + In-Person registration plus event tickets to take part in available sessions, networking activities, and museum visits during The Way Forward, the AMM 2024 Conference in Columbus, OH.
  • Opportunity to meet virtually with members of the Museum EXP team and AMM leadership prior to the conference to get tips, approximately 2-3 weeks prior to the event.
  • Additional $750 stipend for expenses such as an AMM membership or conference travel costs.
  • Opportunity to either introduce yourself, a project, and what excites you about the conference during an AMM social media “takeover” 1-2 weeks prior to the conference – or – to write about a project or another topic of interest for the AMM blog with 60 days after the conference.

Applying is easy and worth your while! All applicants will receive a discount on conference registration. So, go for it!
