Announcing Home Grown: One-Year Curatorial Fellowship (Chicago, IL)

This Deadline Expired: Thursday, February 1, 2018

The National Museum of Mexican Art and The DuSable Museum of African American History are pleased to announce that we have been awarded a joint grant by the Walton Family Foundation and the Ford Foundation through their Diversifying Art Museum Leadership Initiative. The initiative, intended to support creative solutions to diversify curatorial and management staff at art museums across the United States, will fund a curatorial fellowship program and teen workshop series called Home Grown.

We are soliciting applications now for the Home Grown curatorial fellowship program for current or recent graduate students of color or those who identify as ALAANA (African, Latino/a, Asian, Arab, Native American).

The Home Grown Fellowship is an opportunity to learn, engage, and be mentored by curatorial and museum professionals who are leaders in first voice organizations. Additionally, fellows will have the chance to participate in discourse, gain hands-on experience, and gain professional development in the museum administration field.

Fellowships are 12 months in length, starting in May 2018 through May 2019. All fellowships must take place and capstone project completed within this 12-month period.

Read more about the opportunity here. The application deadline is February 1, 2018.
