Latino Museum Studies Program Fellows 2016

The Smithsonian Latino Center is now accepting applications for its 2017 Latino Museum Studies Fellowship Program. Application deadline is March 15, 2017!

The Latino Museum Studies Program (LMSP) provides a national forum for graduate students to share, explore and discuss the representation and interpretation of Latino cultures in the context of the American experience. It provides a unique opportunity to meet and engage with Smithsonian professionals, scholars from renowned universities, and with leaders in the museum field.

The program is organized by the Smithsonian Latino Center (SLC) and is offered in two components. The first is a two-week seminar designed to enhance leadership, research and creative skills through a series of panel discussions, hands-on workshops, interactive discussions and behind-the-scenes tours of Smithsonian museums and collections and other important cultural institutions in the nation’s capital. The second component is a four-week practicum at a Smithsonian museum or research center created to advance a Smithsonian project of program initiative. Practicums are assigned based on the skills, interests, experience and area of study of the applicants.

If you are a graduate student enrolled or engaged in the fields of Latino art, culture, and history, we encourage you to apply! These include but are not limited to art history, visual arts, digital arts, cultural anthropology, arts management, performing arts, and related studies.
