Doctoral Preservation Fellowships at UT-Austin

In 2006, the University of Texas at Austin School of Information
launched an innovative PhD Fellowship initiative to educate doctoral
students in the broad field of library and archives preservation and
conservation.  With a second generous grant from the Institute of
Museum and Library Services, the School is able to offer significant
living stipends and full tuition to 5 full-time doctoral students
for 3 years beginning with the fall 2008 semester. Applications will
be accepted in December 2007 for studies to begin in fall 2008 and
in December 2008 for studies to begin in fall 2009.

The primary goal of the PhD Preservation Fellowship initiative is to
produce doctoral students prepared to meet the challenges of
education, research, and leadership in the field of cultural
preservation in the 21st century, and who will serve as faculty
members in preservation, as preservation researchers, and in leading
administrative positions in libraries.

We are interested in applicants whose academic and professional
backgrounds might include preservation administration, conservation,
archives, digital libraries, digital preservation, moving image and
sound preservation, and information policy, to name a few.  To learn
