The fellowship offers exposure to the operational structure of the multinational museum, as well as rigorous practical museum training experience to individuals interested in pursuing careers in the curatorial field. Each fellow receives funding of $30,000 (subject to taxes). This annual fellowship is made possible by generous support from The Hilla von Rebay Foundation.
