The Propel Program is a multifaceted initiative designed to support and accelerate a curator’s mid-career advancement. The Propel Program is the longest-running initiative of its kind offering both training sessions and workshops as well as support through a professional network including a pairing with a senior curatorial mentor, a peer cohort, and alumni community.

Curators with 7 - 10 years of experience are eligible to apply. Through a competitive, open application process, up to 10 Fellows are selected for the program. We encourage international and U.S. based curators to apply that self-identify as being from underrepresented cultural, racial, ethnic, gender identity, sexual orientation, and/or socio-economic communities.
