Smithsonian Latino Center: 2010 Latino Museum Studies Program


Organized by the Smithsonian Latino Center (SLC), the Latino Museum Studies Program (LMSP) is dedicated to fostering the professional development of emerging leaders in the fields of Latino history, art, and culture. The four-week program includes panel sessions, lectures, workshops, and behind the scenes access to Smithsonian collections. Additionally, fellows work with Smithsonian staff on designated projects and contribute to current exhibitions, programs, and research initiatives in progress at the Institution.

Each year up to fifteen fellows are selected from a nationwide pool of applicants. Participation is free and includes accommodations for the duration of the program, as well as the cost of round-trip travel to Washington, D.C. Fellows are responsible for all other expenses during the four-weeks, including transportation within the city and meals. A stipend is not provided.
