Conference Scholarships Are Back!
MAC is pleased to be able to offer several conference scholarships to its 2023 Conference. Sponsored 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 Programme is a professional growth opportunity that provides financial support for Caribbean-based museum professionals at any stage of their career 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. Applicants must be first-time attendees or not have attended the MAC Conference in five years or more. Application materials may be submitted in English, Spanish, French or Dutch.
Most of the fellowships are restricted to Caribbean-based applicants, but this year MAC is also offering conference scholarships to applicants with a demonstrated interest in Caribbean museology who reside in other parts of the world. For non-Caribbean-based applicants, provide a short statement (250 words or less) about how your work, studies or interests intersect with Caribbean museums and/or Caribbean cultural heritage site work.
The conference fellowship award includes the following:
- complimentary conference registration
- conference tours
- complimentary MAC membership at the individual level for one year
The online application is open beginning October 13. Please note the required documentation to upload via the Google form.
