Winterthur Museum requests a $500,000 NEH Challenge Grant to help establish a $2 million endowment to support the position of Director of Conservation and enhance its mission by creating two vital program expansions: the creation of a new post-graduate fellowship program in conservation and funding for staff development and scientific instrumentation. Winterthur’s decision to endow this position is part of the long-range plan to invest in its intellectual leadership.
