The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Stichting Restauratie Atelier
Limburg with the support of the Ministry of Culture, Government of
India and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation are pleased to announce a
new program offering 16 Fellowships to Indian citizens engaged in
the conservation of sculpture, paintings, and objects.  The
Fellowships are designed to broaden the experience of conservators
currently working in art and cultural heritage museums and
institutions in India.  The Fellowships will be for a period of 3-6
months each. They will be spaced out over a two year period
commencing on or around October 1, 2013. Fellows in Paintings and
Historic Interiors Conservation will be at the Stichting Restauratie
Atelier Limburg (SRAL) in Maastricht, The Netherlands. Fellows in
Sculpture, Objects, and Furniture Conservation will be at the
Sherman Fairchild Center for Objects Conservation at The
Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, USA.

Fellows must be Indian.  Preference will be given to conservators at
a relatively early stage of their professional careers
(approximately 3-8 years conservation experience) and employed by
museums or other institutions in India concerned with the study,
preservation, and display of the country's artistic and cultural
heritage.

Each Fellowship will include a pro-rated annual stipend of $42,000,
ranging from $10,500 for 3 months to $21,000 for 6 months.  The
stipend is intended to cover rent, food, and other living expenses
during the Fellowship and is not intended as a replacement for
salary. Fellows will receive up to $6,000 for travel, which includes
travel to the host institution, as well as possible research travel
for conferences, seminars, and visits to other conservation
departments or cultural institutions.  Fellows will be allotted
$1000 to purchase tools, equipment and supplies for use at their
home institutions.

sculpture, objects, furniture, and archaeological materials to:
