Lowe Curatorial Fellowship for Diversity in the Fine Arts @ PAFA

The Winston & Carolyn Lowe Curatorial Fellowship for Diversity in the Fine Arts (Lowe Curatorial Fellowship) at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) in Philadelphia, PA offers the opportunity for a highly qualified candidate with outstanding credentials to gain professional curatorial experience at a nationally renowned museum of American Art affiliated with a degree-granting fine arts art school.  One of the main goals of the Fellowship is to enhance diversity by focusing recruitment efforts on under-represented groups in America  in the curatorial profession.

The Lowe Curatorial Fellowship will be a full-time, two-year term position offering a highly mentored and structured curatorial experience at PAFA. The Lowe Curatorial Fellowship will be designed to provide a professional bridge to a major institutional museum career and encourage diversity within the museum field.  The Fellowship provides growth and development for outstanding candidates, particularly those from underrepresented groups, and provides a professional bridge to museum careers, encouraging diversity within the museum field.  The start date will be determined based on the successful applicant’s schedule.

Applications will be accepted immediately and will be reviewed until an appropriate candidate is identified.
