With generous funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Penn Museum has established an Academic Liaison Office to coordinate increased use of the Museum’s extraordinary resources by students and faculty. Greatly expanded internship programs and state-of-the-art teaching laboratories will foster vibrant interactions among students, faculty and Museum collections and research staff. Summer and semester field schools will offer hands-on opportunities for archaeological training.
Through Destination 2012, friends and family members can support the Museum’s student programs through annual support (given on a single or multi-year basis) or an endowment gift, and may choose to designate their gift to:
- Provide financial assistance to undergraduate students participating in archaeological field work through a Museum summer or semester field school.
- Provide funding for a summer or academic year Museum internship.
- Provide funding to equip or renovate a teaching laboratory.
For more information on making a term funding or endowment gift to support Student Programs at the Penn Museum, please contact Amanda Mitchell-Boyask or Therese Marmion.
