"The scholarship was a lifesaver in getting me to the conference."
~2018 Scholarship Recipient

  Scholarship Appeal

The Michigan Museums Association (MMA) conference is a time for the Michigan museum community to come together to learn from and inspire each other. At MMA, we are working to break down barriers so that more people can attend the conference. Can you help us with this effort?

The 2023 conference in Flint is going to be fabulous, and to help minimize the financial barrier for participation, MMA will offer scholarships to cover registration fees and provide a stipend to offset transportation and/or travel expenses.

This summer, we are publicly launching a campaign to raise $10,000 by Labor Day to be able to offer 20 conference scholarships. Thanks to a generous donor who has provided funding for 10 scholarships for small museum staff and volunteers, we are already halfway there. The MMA Board has pledged to fund one and a half more scholarships, so we just need eight and a half more scholarships to meet our goal. 

Campaign Progress

Collected: $9,575.00
Goal: $10,000.00

Your gift can help someone from the Michigan museum community connect with the resources they need to help their museum thrive. Your donation to the MMA Scholarship appeal can be the spark that connects someone with the colleagues that will support them for decades of throughout their museum career journey. Please consider making a donation to the scholarship fund today.
