The Michigan Museums Association (MMA) is pleased to be able to offer a number of scholarships to help more of our members attend our annual conference this year, which is being held October 23-25 in Flint.
Small Museum Scholarship - The Richard and Jane Manoogian Foundation will fund 10 scholarships for staff or volunteers involved with small museums (volunteer-led or with budgets of under $500,000). The scholarship will include an MMA membership if the applicant is not one already.
Student Scholarships - Each MMA University Member will be given scholarships to be distributed through their program. The number will be determined by the success of the appeal. Students not enrolled in a member program can apply through the member scholarship process.
Member Scholarships - Open to individual MMA members and those listed on the accounts for MMA institutional members. Number available will depend on funds raised through the appeal.
The application process for all three scholarship is the same. Scholarships will be awarded based on articulation of need and desire to attend, and will reflect the broadest representation of MMA membership possible. The scholarship is valued at $500 and will cover conference registration and provide a stipend for travel and other expenses.
Scholarship applications are due August 9, 2023.
