Established in 2014, the AAMC Foundation’s Mentorship Program has welcomed mentees across 28 US states and nine countries, with 77% securing new and/or elevated positions since participating. The 2021–2022 Mentorship Program will include both virtual and in-person components.  

Open to nonprofit curators with six to nine years of experience, the program provides opportunities to advance professional development, investigate important issues in the field, cultivate strong bonds with peers, and develop an independent relationship with a mentor. Up to 10 mentees are selected through a competitive, open application process. Program highlights include a learning residency, a partnership with a mentor, a cohort network, a final workshop, and full access to the Association of Art Museum Curators’s vast community and annual conference. 

All elements of the application are due Thursday, July 8, 2021 at 5pm (EDT).
