Patrick Ravines (Project Director: May 2019 to present)
Fellowships for Graduate Students in the Conservation of Cultural Heritage for the 2020-2022 Period at Buffalo State College’s Patricia H. and Richard E. Garman Art Conservation Department

Partial fellowship stipends for 17 graduate students enrolled in the State University of New York College at Buffalo (SUNY Buffalo) program in art conservation. Students to receive funding would include nine students in the class of 2021 and eight in the class of 2022.

The preservation of our cultural heritage is a never-ending process involving cultural heritage institutions ranging from major libraries, museums, and archives to local historical societies, and professionals from diverse fields such as historians, librarians, archivists, curators, computer scientists, physical scientists, and conservators. A critical portion of preservation is in the hands of conservators. Conservators intimately interact with the works of cultural heritage or art to restore them to functional use by today’s scholars and historians. They return works to appropriate aesthetic levels for exhibition and preserve them for future generations to learn from and appreciate. The education and training of conservators is an essential component of all preservation efforts and the Garman Art Conservation Department at the State University of New York College at Buffalo is fully committed to this goal and we are in need of NEH support to continue with our important mission.
