The Philadelphia Museum of Art offers a one year Mellon Postgraduate
Fellowship in Furniture and Woodwork Conservation, beginning in
September 2009. The Fellowship may be extended for up to two
additional years pending review of the Fellow's work. Applicants

diverse collections and will participate in preservation activities
throughout the Museum.

Each fellowship includes a stipend of $31,000, health insurance,
$3,000 in travel funds, and $2,000 for research support. Applicants
should send a letter with a statement of interest; a resume;
transcripts of graduate and undergraduate courses; several samples
of examination reports and treatment records with photographs; any
published treatments or research; and two supporting letters from
conservation professionals familiar with the candidate's work to:
