Annual Conference Scholarship Application

The Museums Association of Montana is pleased to announce the availability of annual conference scholarships in which the conference and workshop registration fee will be waived (does not include travel expenses). Preference will be given to those who demonstrate financial need, are first time conference attendees, and new to the museum profession. Scholarship recipients must also be individual members of MAM. Otherwise you must register for an individual membership at a cost of S40. Recipients will be required to attend the entire conference and will be introduced during the banquet on Friday. MAM scholarship recipients are awarded on a one-time basis, therefore, awardees from previous years are not eligible to apply. MAM board members may also apply for this scholarship thanks to a donation by Pat Roath from Specialty Museum Services.


If you have any questions about the conference, please contact:
Deb Mitchell- MAM Executive Director- 406-444-4789 or dmitchell@mt.gov
