In 2020, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, MCN was forced to cancel its planned annual conference, scheduled to take place in-person in Baltimore that November, and to redesign the conference into a virtual experience that allowed the community to (virtually) come together. The scholarship program also needed to be redesigned. As part of this move, the MCN 2020 Scholarship Program, made possible by the generous support of the Kress Foundation, was still able to award scholarships to 10 qualified emerging professionals from the cultural sector, representing an international scope and varied interests/specialties. These scholarships supported museum professionals in conducting research, working with the MCN Special Interest Groups, and ultimately creating a peer-reviewed paper of their findings centered around the prompt “What’s Emerging in the Field?” and aligned with the sustainability theme."
