Undergraduate, graduate, and emerging professionals are invited to submit presentation proposals for VAM's Student Research Session during the 2020 Annual Conference over March 8-10, 2020 in Northern Virginia. Three presenters will be selected to speak and will receive a full registration scholarship to attend the conference.
The student research session showcases three jury-selected presentations on the latest museum-based student projects and research. This scholarship opportunity allows students and those new to the museum field (within the last three years) to connect with their experienced colleagues and other students to gain new insight, share ideas, and network.
The Virginia Association of Museums (VAM) recognizes the future of the museum profession is in the hands of current college and university students. Representing the fields of art, history, public history, science, education, museum studies, historic preservation, archives and more, students are already engaged in the classroom and as museum interns, doing research, producing exhibitions, developing education programs, recording oral histories, and creating web content, among other work related to museums and nonprofits in Virginia and the District of Columbia. We hope this opportunity will help further our student members' careers and offer stronger connections for emerging professionals
Undergraduate and graduate students and those new to the field within the last three years who have done significant or promising work on museum-based projects or research, and are based in VAM's region of Virginia and Washington, DC.
