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

Established by a gift from conservator, teacher, and paper historian
Cathleen A. Baker, the Baker Fellowship provides financial support for
conservators at various levels in their careers to enable them to spend
time working on a research, practical, or internship 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.

Applicants propose a project, the length of time they wish to spend at the
U-M Library Conservation Lab (2 to 12 months), and a budget. Proposals for
2016-2017 may request up to $10,000 for the project. More information about
the Fellowship and how to apply is available at:


This fellowship is limited to United States citizens or residents with U.S.
work permits only.

Deadline for applications is January 31, 2016, for projects to be completed
between May 1, 2016, and August 31, 2017.
