The FIDM Museum is excited to announce the Lori and Sal Santamaura Summer Study Grant. Open to U.S. citizens, applicants should be enrolled in a graduate program in fashion history or museum studies; consideration will also be given to students beginning their graduate program in Fall 2017.
The eight-week (35 hours per week) Study Program will introduce a student to the fashion-focused Museum field. This may include working on a collections-based project, cataloging, curatorial research, and installation experience. Additionally, the student will have the opportunity to shadow each FIDM Museum staff member and participate in educational field trips to other local collections. They will also work on a FIDM Museum collections-based research project of their choice; findings will be presented on the FIDM Museum Blog.
This Summer Study Grant consists of a $1,000 stipend; $500 will be paid to the student on their first day at the FIDM Museum, and the remaining $500 will be given their last day. One Study Grant is offered per calendar year.
Applications (cover letter and resumé) will be reviewed upon receipt, and qualifying applicants will be interviewed prior to beginning the program.
Applications for the Lori and Sal Santamaura Summer Study Grant are due Saturday, April 1. To submit your application or for additional information, contact us via email: info@FIDMmuseum.org.
