Fellowships in Museum Practice

The Smithsonian’s Fellowships in Museum Practice (FMP) program is an opportunity for mid- and senior-level museum personnel, researchers and training providers to spend time at the Smithsonian researching a particular topic of interest that is relevant to their work at the intersection of digital education and the museum profession. The goal of the program is to provide opportunities for researchers who empower students, teachers, and lifelong learners to access, integrate, and add to the Smithsonian’s digital collection of assets. Fellows promote the exchange of knowledge in their field and increase the Smithsonian’s impact as a national educational organization. 1-2 fellowships are awarded annually for a period of up to 6 months. An award consists of a stipend of $3,500 per month plus round-trip travel expenses between the recipient’s home and Washington, D.C.
