Each year at the Annual Meeting, the Mid-Atlantic Association of Museums (MAAM) awards between six and ten fellowships for individuals to attend the conference. Our goal is to limit financial barriers to fellowship applicants so they can focus on professional development and networking.
MAAM offers 2 fellowships:
1) Bruce Craig Fellowship for Emerging Museum professionals and
2) Fellowship for Diversity and Inclusion.

Fellowship for Diversity: This fellowship welcomes applicants who are members of diverse communities, including applicants of diverse gender identities, LGBTQIA+ applicants, applicants of color, and other applicants representing underrepresented groups.
