January 10, 2019, New York - AAMC Foundation is accepting applications for its 2019 Conference Travel Fellowships, supporting travel to AAMC & AAMC Foundation’s Annual Conference & Meeting, This year’s Conference will take place on May 4-7, 2019 in NYC, with events and sessions at over 20 organizations throughout the city.   

As attendance at the Conference welcomes members that work in many fields and types of institutions, located throughout the globe, the ability to connect outside of one’s circle is an uncommon and energizing opportunity for a curator. However, it is not just the connections made but also the sites visited that will have a positive impact on attendees as we will have the opportunity to visit varied examples of art organizations within NYC. In addition, the Conference sessions will discuss topics around internal and external engagement within art organizations and look at the possibilities and responsibilities of the curatorial role within inclusive and accessible engagement practices.

Many curators, due to no or extremely limited access to professional development funding or travel allowances, cannot afford to attend the program without support. In general, it has been AAMC’s experience that curators, at all levels, are often in need of travel support. Therefore, in 2006, AAMC established a Travel Fellowship Program, which enables junior curators and curators with no or little funds allocated for professional development travel to attend the AAMC Annual Conference. Since 2010 alone, over 200 individual Travel Grant Fellowships have been awarded. Past supporters have included the J. Paul Getty Foundation, Samuel H. Kress Foundation, Henry Luce Foundation, and Terra Foundation for American Art.

This year, the Foundation is welcoming applications for:
