Tru Vue Inc. has partnered with FAIC to offer grants to support
projects in glazing applications for preservation of museum and
library collections.  Funds are to help defray direct project costs,
including supplies and publicity.  Projects must be supported by a
conservator and demonstrate conservation goals.

Up to four awards will be made each year.  Each award includes a
cash amount of up to $4,000 and donated Tru Vue Optium materials.

Recipients of the grant in 2008 were The Mariners' Museum of Newport
News, Virginia, and the Newark Museum of New Jersey for projects
which will help conserve their collections.

To be eligible,

    Applicant must be a not-for-profit collecting institution
    (museum or library) with active exhibition programs and located
    in one of the 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, or U.S.

    The institution must have at least one full-time conservator on
    staff, or a conservator on contract for the project

    Projects should be completed within 12 months of the award date

The deadline for receipt of all materials is May 1 and November 1 of
each year.  Electronic submissions are encouraged but not required.
