Posted by: Evangeline Mee

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation is seeking a Senior Program Officer for Arts and Cultural Heritage. The Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that makes grants and supports research in five core program areas: higher education and scholarship in the humanities; scholarly communications; arts and cultural heritage; diversity; and international higher education. Reporting directly to the Executive Vice President for Programs and Research (EVP), the Senior Program Officer (SPO) shapes and directs the Foundation's grantmaking in the arts and in the study and preservation of cultural heritage. The Arts and Cultural Heritage program supports initiatives in the United States and, where appropriate, internationally, in arts and higher education institutions that help build or strengthen the arts ecosystem of the future while conserving its past accomplishments. The program also works with partner organizations to support notable and promising individual artists. In this capacity, the SPO will be the chief architect of the evolving strategic directions for this area of the Foundation's mission. The SPO will oversee, encourage, inspire, and focus program staff in Arts and Cultural Heritage, and serve on a team of program leaders who advise the EVP and the President on broader strategic concerns. The SPO will also contribute actively to various collective activities and special initiatives of the Foundation.
