About the Conference Travel Fellowship Program
MAC is pleased to be able to offer several conference scholarships to the 2023 conference. Supported by the Office of Strategic Partnerships at the National Museum of African American History and Culture and the Smithsonian initiative Our Shared Future: Reckoning With Our Racial Past, the Program is a professional growth opportunity that provides financial support for Caribbean-based emerging museum professionals to attend the MAC Annual Conference.
The fellowship aims to promote greater inclusivity of museum professionals working in underrepresented regions and/or marginalized museums and cultural heritage sites. All travel fellows are first-time attendees or have not attended the MAC Conference in five years or more.
The conference fellowship award includes the following:
- complimentary conference registration
- conference tours
- complimentary MAC membership at the individual level for one year
