Support the tAM scholarship fund
TAM is proud to offer over $6,000 in annual scholarships providing financial assistance for members to attend the Annual Meeting. Your year-end contribution to the TAM Scholarship Fund will give first-time attendees the opportunity to be a part of the largest gathering of museum professionals in both Texas and New Mexico.
The Glenda Morgan Scholarship Fund
For over 30 years the Glenda Morgan Scholarship Fund has been used to underwrite educational training costs for Texas museum professionals including the expense of TAM Annual Meeting registration, travel, and/or lodging.
The Sage Scholarship
In honor of Sandy Sage's 15 years of service to TAM, last year we established a "complete package" registration scholarship to TAM Annual Meeting in her name. The Sage Scholarship is directed to established museum professionals with 15+ years in the field.

The GLBT Scholarship is supported by private donations from individuals and is designed to provide professional development assistance and support diversity.
