The goal of the fellowship program is to prepare and cultivate the next generation of museum leaders through an innovative program that combines direct experience in strategic planning, curatorial and program leadership, board engagement, donor stewardship, financial and resource management, and policy development, along with building partnerships across the broader industry and community.
Applebaum completed her Ph.D. in art history at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She received a master’s degree in art history from Hunter College of the City University of New York and a bachelor’s degree in comparative literature from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
In addition to her academic and museum fellowship positions, she also worked in New York City, both in art advisory and gallery roles, and in the executive office at Christie’s.
