Organized by the Smithsonian Latino Center (SLC), the Latino Museum Studies Program (LMSP) was established in 1994 to increase the representation, documentation, knowledge and interpretation of Latino art, culture, and history. The program includes a two-week seminar designed to provide participants with the tools to enhance their leadership, research, and creative skills through a series of lectures, workshops and hands-on experiences at the Smithsonian Institution, as well as other research facilities within the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. The second half of the program includes a team project which provides practical experience in different areas of museum work such as collecting initiatives, museum-based curriculum development, curatorial work, and on-line education initiatives. All participants are required to work on a final project and complete all four weeks of the program.
Fifteen mid-career museum professionals and graduate students are selected from a nationwide pool of applicants. Participation is free and includes the cost of round-trip travel to Washington, D.C. and housing accommodations for the duration of the four-week program.
Application deadline is commonly in April. Visit funder website for more information.
