Mellon Opportunity for Diversity in Conservation: Program Presentation
The Andrew W. Mellon Opportunity for Diversity in Conservation provides support and mentorship for undergraduate students from fields such as studio art, art history, archaeology, anthropology, and physical sciences who are presently underrepresented in conservation. The program includes a weeklong workshop introducing students to museum careers in conservation and a fully-funded undergraduate internship at a museum conservation laboratory. Learn how to care for cultural objects through research, analysis, documentation, collaboration with artists and experts, treatment, and preventive care.
Applications are currently available for students or recent degree holders to attend a fully funded, week-long summer workshop in Los Angeles, July 9-14, 2018, designed to introduce participants to conservation and other collections work through tours, lab activities, lectures and presentations at the Getty Villa and regional museums.
Participants in the 2018 summer workshop are eligible to apply for a fully funded 8-10 week internship the following summer.
