The Martin E. Sullivan Museum Scholars Program

PLEASE NOTE: APPLICATIONS FOR PROJECTS BEGINNING JUNE 1 OR LATER ARE DUE APRIL 11, 2014.

The Martin E. Sullivan Museum Scholars Program is designed for highly motivated students who plan to pursue a career in museums, public history, or historic preservation.  Sullivan Museum Scholars enjoy a wide range of opportunities to explore the method and theory of these three fields in real-world settings, including funded assistantships and internships, special field trips, seminars, and study-abroad programs. 

Sullivan Museum Scholars receive a stipend of up to $3000 per year to work in a museum or related setting.  Museum Scholars may also use the funds for travel to conferences or other related projects.  The funds can be drawn throughout the academic year and/or during summer break. Students accepted as a Museum Scholar are eligible for this stipend each year of participation in the program.     

The Martin E. Sullivan Museum Scholars Program was created to recognize the contributions of former Historic St. Mary's City executive director Martin E. Sullivan in the development of the College's Museum Studies Program. Dr. Sullivan is a nationally recognized museum professional whose career in museums spans East, West; art, history; old, and new. Dr. Sullivan is currently the director of the Smithsonian Institution's National Portrait Gallery.
