What does the Martin E. Sullivan Museum Scholars Program offer to participants?

The Museum Scholars Program offers students an unprecedented opportunity to explore the related fields of museum studies, public history, and historic preservation beyond the classroom setting. The program provides this opportunity in part through the creation of a small community of highly motivated and engaged student scholars interested in the specified fields.

The very generous stipend that is available to all Museum Scholars can be used to travel to conferences, support unpaid work in an approved host institution, or offset expenses related to the student's work in the field.  For more about the use of the stipend, click here.

Museum Scholars will also have the opportunity to participate in specially organized field trips and in small setting encounters with visiting scholars and fellows in the Museum Studies Program.
