Student Groups


Barnett Fellows

On May 7, 1993, Lawrence R. Barnett and Isabel Bigley Barnett established the Lawrence and Isabel Barnett Fellowship Fund. Barnett Fellowships are awarded to promising students applying to the MA in Arts Policy and Administration program and the Arts Administration, Education and Policy PhD program with a specialization in Cultural Policy and Arts Management. The Fellowship fund provides tuition, fees, and an annual stipend.

In 2009, the Department of Arts Administration, Education and Policy developed the Barnett Dissertation Fellowship Fund to assist advanced doctoral students specializing in Cultural Policy and Arts Management finish their dissertation and launch their careers.


Future Arts Managers and Entrepreneurs (FAME) strives to build community and social cohesion among undergraduate students interested in arts management. FAME provides professional development and networking opportunities for future arts managers and entrepreneurs with innovative ideas such as the creation of a student engagement group at the Wexner Center for the Arts, as well as events, symposia, and other kinds of programs. We educate our membership on topics and experiences related to subjects within arts and culture, entrepreneurship, networking, arts management, and business. We look at focus areas such as branding through various exercises to explore personal, professional, and organizational branding. FAME is advised by Dr. Shoshanah Goldberg-Miller.
