Cathleen A. Baker Fellowship in Paper and Book Conservation
Department of Preservation and Conservation
University of Michigan

The Department of Preservation and Conservation at the University of
Michigan Library is now accepting proposals for the Cathleen A.
Baker Fellowship in Paper and Book Conservation.

Established by a gift from conservator, teacher, and paper historian
Cathleen A. Baker, the Baker Fellowship provides financial support
for conservators at various levels in their careers to enable them
to spend time working on a research or practical project at the
University of Michigan Library's Conservation Lab. While projects
focused on conservation of paper-based collections are typical,
proposals on related non-paper materials, such as papyrus or
parchment/vellum, will also be considered.  Most fellows will work
with U-M Library conservators to develop their own knowledge and
skills, but a fellow may also join the lab primarily to pass on
her/his expertise to the U-M conservators. Building and sharing
knowledge are the primary goals of this fellowship. The fellowship
is offered annually.

Applicants propose a project, the length of time they wish to spend
at the U-M Library Conservation Lab (2 to 12 months), and a budget.
Proposals for 2014-2015 may request up to $10,000 for the project.
This fellowship is limited to United States citizens or residents
with U.S. work permits only.

Deadline for applications is January 31, 2014, for projects to be
completed between September 1, 2014, and August 31, 2015.
