Students hold the key to the future of our professional community. Representing a diverse array of academic fields, students are engaged in the classroom and as museum interns, doing research, producing exhibitions, developing education programs, recording oral histories, and creating web content, and more.

Developed in partnership with the Association of Academic Museums & Galleries, the 2016 student research session will showcase selected museum-based student projects and research, as well as offer a way for students to connect with experienced museum professionals and other students to gain new insight, share ideas, and network.Selected students will receive a scholarship to attend the full VAM conference from March 12 – 15, 2016.
