Cathleen A. Baker Fellowship in Paper and Book Conservation
University of Michigan Library

The Department of Preservation and Conservation at the University of
Michigan Library is now receiving proposals for the Cathleen A.
Baker Fellowship in Paper and Book Conservation.

The Baker Fellowship provides financial support for conservators at
various levels in their careers to enable them to spend time working
on a research or practical project at the University of Michigan
Library's Conservation Lab. While projects focused on conservation
of paper-based collections are typical, proposals on related
non-paper materials, such as papyrus or parchment/vellum, will also
be considered. Most fellows will work with U-M Library conservators
to develop their own knowledge and skills, but a fellow may also
join the lab primarily to pass on her/his expertise to the U-M
conservators. Building and sharing knowledge are the primary goals
of this fellowship.

The Cathleen A. Baker Fellowship in Conservation was established in
April 2011 by a gift from Dr. Baker, Conservation Librarian at the
University of Michigan Library and Fellow of the American Institute
for Conservation. The fellowship is offered annually.

Applicants propose a project, the length of time they wish to spend
at the U-M Library Conservation Lab (2-12 months), and a budget.
Proposals for 2013-2014 may request up to $10,000 for the project.
This fellowship is limited to United States citizens or residents
with U.S. work permits only.

More information about the Fellowship and how to apply is available

Deadline for applications is January 31, 2013, for projects to be
completed between September 1, 2013, and August 31, 2014.
