Fellowships at Quinque Foundation

Quinque Fellows Program

The Quinque Fellows Program offers skilled practitioners and
practicing conservation/preservation professionals based and working
in either Scotland or the US an unique opportunity to undertake a
6-10 week fellowship under the supervision and guidance of
counterparts in their field. The core of each fellowship program is
structured around the observation of, and where appropriate,
hands-on involvement with, preservation works in progress. This is
complemented by placements with, and visits to, related
organizations and supplemented by any additional opportunities to
attend seminars, conferences and other formal training events.

Applications for the September 2002 - September 2003 round of
fellowships are invited from practitioners and professionals with a
minimum of five to ten years proven experience in the following
broadly defined categories:

    *   Architectural conservation/historic preservation
    *   Historic parks, gardens and landscapes
    *   Objects conservation (which includes: gilding, furniture,
        textiles, ceramics, stained glass, structural paintings, and
    *   Preventative conservation
    *   Site conservation and management
    *   Use of traditional building techniques and materials (which
        includes: stone, lime, timber, thatch)

Up to a maximum of 12 fellowships will be offered.  Deadline for
submission of applications is June 15, 2002.  Applicants will be
notified of a final decision within six weeks of this date.

This innovative scheme has been developed collaboratively by Quinque
Foundation, a US-based charity whose mission includes the
conservation and enhancement of natural and built heritage, and
Historic Scotland, an agency of the Scottish Executive charged with
responsibility for safeguarding Scotland's archaeological and built
heritage and promoting its understanding and enjoyment.

Fellowships are funded entirely by Quinque Foundation.  However,
individuals must be able to identify a non-profit organization
within their home country willing to serve as the sponsor
organisation for the fellowship.  The sponsor organization may be
the individual's current employer.  The sponsor organization will
serve as the fiscal agent of the fellowship grant and be responsible
for disbursing funds to the fellow.
