Training for Conservation and Preservation of Material Culture for Humanities Access

Graduate education in the conservation of art and material culture collections, with support for guest lecturers, adjunct faculty, and stipends for up to three students each year.

The Conservation Center of the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, requests funding in the amount of $200,000 to support Training for Conservation and Preservation of Material Culture for Humanities Access, to provide two years of financial aid for three students and funding for adjunct faculty and guest lecturers. Conservators play a critical role in the preservation of and access to our cultural heritage, including artifacts, collections, specimens, structures or sites identified as having artistic, historic, scientific, religious or social significance. A significant portion of this material inheritance is at risk of damage and loss. Specialized training is necessary to educate conservators. As the only U.S. program that offers a dual graduate degree in art history and conservation, the Conservation Center prepares graduates to preserve our material culture and collaborate in humanities research.
