From Theory to Practice: Internships in Archaeological and Ethnographic Conservation

Funding supports stipends for seven graduate students from the UCLA/Getty Master's Program to complete summer and third year internships in archaeological and ethnographic conservation.

This two-year proposal to the National Endowment for the Humanities seeks $201,512 in support of stipends for seven graduate students from the UCLA/Getty Master's Program to complete summer and third year internships in archaeological and ethnographic conservation. Funding is sought to permit students to take advantage of unfunded opportunities for training presented by collection-rich and resource-poor institutions in both the United States and abroad. Through these internships, students work with experts at some of the culturally richest and most staff-needy institutions, increasing student skills while promoting the significant impact conservation has on the stewardship of collections. Funds are also sought to permit students to attend and present work at two of the annual conferences of the Association of North American Graduate Programs in Conservation.
