What you may have not heard is that VAM has added a student research session<http:[log in to unmask]&job=2222813&ymlink=4461708&finalurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Evamuseums%2Eorg%2F%3Fpage%3D2016studentresearch> to our conference! The session will be held the afternoon of Monday, March 14, 2016. Developed in partnership with the Association of Academic Museums & Galleries (AAMG), the session will showcase selected museum-based student projects and research.

 This is a great way for students to bolster their resumes while connecting 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.
