2015 Latino Museum Studies Summer Program at the Smithsonian

April 8, 2015

2015 Latino Museum Studies Program: June 29 - August 1, 2015

The Smithsonian Latino Center (SLC) is currently accepting applications for its 2015 Latino Museum Studies Fellowship Program, which offers an opportunity for graduate students enrolled or engaged in the fields of Latino and Latin American art, culture, and history to focus on developing museum practice. 

The first weeklong component is designed to enhance leadership, research and creative skills through a series of lectures, workshops, interactive discussions and behind-the-scenes tours of Smithsonian museums and collections.  The second four-week component consists of a practicum project with a selected Smithsonian museum. Applicants are asked to list their top three choices for a project in their application essay.

This could be an excellent Practicum Opportunity for the Museum Studies Program this summer.

The application deadline is Friday 4/17/15. To find out more, go here.  http://latino.si.edu/Education/Studies
