DeVos Institute of Arts Management at the University of Maryland offers Global Arts Management Fellowship
The DeVos Institute Fellowship serves entrepreneurial executives in the arts and cultural sector who are prepared to look critically at their work, challenge assumptions, and develop rigorous strategies to address the most pressing challenges facing their organizations, regions, and art forms at large. Designed for individuals who have dedicated themselves to management, rather than artistic leadership, the program supports leaders in positions of decision-making authority in developing, implementing, and refining organizational strategies over a three-year, cohort-based engagement. Fellows receive: air and ground transportation between Washington, D.C. and their state or country of residence; lodging during the Fellowship; per diem to cover living expenses during the Fellowship; visa sponsorship (for international applicants); and program materials. Interested candidates are asked to submit an LOI by November 15, 2019. Read more...
