Michigan Museums Association – call for student papers

Are you currently a student or a recent graduate of a museum studies, public history, historic preservation, or related program? Have you participated in a museum related activity for school or a robust project during an internship? If so, please consider submitting a student paper or project proposal for the Michigan Museums Association (MMA) Annual Conference in Dearborn!

Are you a museum staff person working with a student this summer, or who has worked with a student recently who is clearly headed for success? If so, please consider encouraging him or her to submit a proposal.

We invite proposals for presentations on any topic within the field of museums, although preference may be given to those that fit the conference theme, From the Ground Up: Leadership in Museums. MMA seeks to showcase students from programs across the state—all interested students are encouraged to apply. All proposals will be reviewed by a committee that will make the final selection.

Need extra incentive? Students selected to present during the conference will receive complimentary full conference registration and a small stipend for travel!

Deadline for submissions:  September 14
