Application deadline: March 13, 2020
Stipends available: 1

San Francisco, CA | May 17-20, 2020

RC-WR is offering one stipend in the amount of $750 to applicants who wish to attend the AAM Annual Meeting in San Francisco.

AAM’s Annual Meeting is the only event of its scope and scale. It brings together museums of all types and sizes—from art and history museums to zoos and botanic gardens—to share ideas and make connections that are transformational. It’s a place where all museum professionals learn from one another, create partnerships, and leave inspired to make an impact on their museums, communities, and the world.

As we enter a new decade, AAM’s 2020 Annual Meeting is focusing on how we can all collaborate to prepare for the future of the museum field. The 2020 Annual Meeting is your opportunity to gain actionable content paired with the networking events to create partnerships that will ensure your museum is ready to meet the challenges of the future head-on.


Stipend awardees will be required to write about a session that they attend at the conference for publication in the RC-WR newsletter.
