Friday, October 5, 2018
DeVos Institute of Arts Management at the University of Maryland is accepting applications for its 2019-21 Global Arts Management Fellowship Program. Launched by DeVos Institute Chairman Michael M. Kaiser in 2001 during his tenure as President of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Art, the Fellowship has served nearly 250 arts managers from 55 countries.
Led by DeVos Institute executives, consultants, and experts in the field, this highly competitive program provides practical training in such essential areas as strategic planning, fundraising, and marketing. Fellows attend a four-week intensive in Washington, D.C. each summer for three consecutive years, where they also collaborate on team projects and discuss strategies that have — and haven't — proven successful at their organizations, fostering a dynamic exchange of ideas.
The DeVos Institute's Fellowship program includes:
- Intensive academic training in nonprofit management, finance, planning, fundraising, evaluation, and marketing;
- Access to leaders of cultural institutions from throughout the United States, including site visits to select institutions;
- Collaborative group work; and
- Ongoing personalized mentoring, both during and between the month-long residencies.
The program is offered free of charge and provides:
- Air and ground transportation between Washington, D.C. and their city of residence;
- Lodging during the Fellowship;
- Per diem to cover living expenses during the Fellowship;
- Visa sponsorship (for international applicants); and
- Program materials.
The deadline to apply for the 2019-21 Fellowship is December 1, 2018.
