Professional Development for Conservators of Humanities Collections

Professional development through workshops offered around the country for conservators responsible for the care of humanities collections.

On behalf of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic & Artistic Works (AIC), the Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation (FAIC) seeks funding in the amount of $288,312 to support nine workshops: five new course topics at six workshops over a two year period and two workshops for three presentations from the 2004-2005 NEH project. This initiative is part of the AIC’s newly expanded program of professional development for conservators of cultural heritage, and builds on the successes and lessons learned from previous programs. An estimated 177 conservators will participate. 50 scholarships will increase access for conservators in underserved regions through travel stipends.
