Subject: Deadline for FAIC Kress Conservation Fellowship

Deadline for FAIC Kress Conservation Fellowship

From: Abigail Choudhury <achoudhury<-a>
Date: Thursday, December 11, 2014
The 2015 deadline for receipt of applications for the FAIC/Samuel H.
Kress Conservation Fellowship is January 22, 2015.

The Kress Conservation Fellowship program provides a wide range of
post-graduate fellowship opportunities that will help develop the
skills of emerging conservators.  Application must be made by the
museum or conservation facility at which the internship will be
based. Fellows should have completed (or will complete prior to the
Fellowship) a masters-level degree in conservation prior to
beginning the Fellowship. The Fellowship candidate may be identified
in advance of application by the host institution or recruited
subsequently.  Priority is given to first-year requests, but worthy
projects that clearly outline benefits to the Fellow for a second
year of Fellowship can be and have been funded.

Criteria: Because of the broad goals of the Fellowship program, the
evaluation of applications is based on relative as well as
independent criteria.  Overall, the program seeks to support a set
of internships that offer:

    A variety of specialty areas (paintings, paper, objects, etc.)

    Opportunities for graduates of a variety of North American
    graduate programs

    Opportunities to work in a variety of institutions, from large
    municipal museums to university museums and other conservation
    facilities, as well as sites outside the U.S.

    A combination of proven Fellowship sites as well as
    opportunities at institutions that have not previously hosted
    Kress Fellows

Applications will be rated according to the potential for the
Fellowship to develop professional skills, knowledge, and abilities
in conservation, based on an ability to:

    Provide a varied and challenging set of tasks
    Provide sufficient and qualified supervision and mentoring
    Provide access to appropriate expertise and analytical services
    Provide appropriate work space and equipment
    Provide opportunities for professional presentations and public
    outreach activities
