Quinque Fellows Program

The Quinque Fellows Program offers skilled practitioners and
practicing conservation/preservation professionals based and working
in either Scotland or the United States an unique opportunity to
undertake a 6-8 week fellowship under the supervision and guidance
of counterparts in their field.  The core of each fellowship program
is structured around the observation of, and where appropriate,
hands-on involvement with, preservation works in progress.  This is
complemented by placements with, and visits to, related
organizations and may be supplemented by attending seminars,
conferences and other formal training events.

Applications for the 2004 round of fellowships are invited from
practitioners and professionals with a minimum of five to ten years
proven experience in the following broadly defined categories:

    *   Architectural conservation/preservation
    *   Historic parks, gardens and landscapes
    *   Objects conservation including, but not limited to, gilding,
        furniture, textiles, ceramics, stained glass, structural
        paintings, and paper
    *   Management of historic sites and restoration projects
    *   Traditional craft techniques including, but not limited to,
        joinery, metalwork, stonework

Up to a maximum of 16 fellowships will be offered to Americans and
Scots. Deadline for submission of applications is April 15, 2003.
Applicants will be notified of a final decision by June 30, 2003.

This innovative scheme has been developed collaboratively by Quinque
Foundation, a US-based charity whose mission includes the
conservation and enhancement of natural and built heritage, and
Historic Scotland, an agency of the Scottish Executive charged with
responsibility for safeguarding Scotland's archaeological and built
heritage and promoting its understanding and enjoyment.

Fellowships are funded entirely by Quinque Foundation.  However,
individuals must be able to identify a non-profit organization
within their home country willing to serve as the sponsor
organization for the fellowship.  The sponsor organization may be
the individual's current employer.  The sponsor organization will
serve as the fiscal agent of the fellowship grant and be responsible
for disbursing funds to the Fellow.
