The Center for Curatorial Leadership 2014 Application is now available online at Applications will be accepted electronically or by mail until July 26, 2013.

The CCL seeks full-time curators who are currently employed at art museums where they are charged with the care, display, and interpretation of objects as well as the organization of temporary exhibitions. Nominations will be sought from museum directors and administrators, but self-nominations are also strongly encouraged. Applicants should be proven scholars and leaders in their field. They should also have demonstrated some leadership initiative, either in their museums or in other aspects of their lives (e.g., community service, board service, etc.). Applications will be reviewed by the director of the CCL and a small committee of current and former museum directors.

Beginning January 5 – 17, 2014, the program will consist of the following: 

  • In January, a two-week intensive program in New York that includes teaching (led by faculty members from Columbia University Business School) and practical exposure and assignments (to be provided by museums, cultural institutions, and other civic organizations across the city).
  • A mentorship/residency with a museum director from an institution different from the fellow’s home institution.
  • A student mentoring project, assigned in January, to cover the span of the fellowship.
  • A one-week program in June that includes instruction, coaching, and presentation of team assignment.

The 2014 tuition is $2,500 per Fellow to cover a portion of the program expenses.  The CCL will absorb the rest of the cost of travel, hotel, and other expenses related to the program.  Tuition assistance will be available to all accepted candidates on an as-need basis; it is strongly encouraged, however, that museums support the professional development of their curators and underwrite the tuition fee.

Please see the Center for Curatorial Leadership website ( for more details on how to apply and the 2014 fellowship program.
