Samuel H. Kress Foundation: Conservation Grants Program
The Kress Foundation supports scholarly projects that promote the appreciation, interpretation, preservation, study, and teaching of European art from antiquity to the early 19th century. The Conservation program supports the professional practice of art conservation, especially as it relates to European art of the pre-modern era. Grants are awarded to projects that create and disseminate specialized knowledge, including archival projects, conservation research, development and dissemination of scholarly databases, documentation projects, exhibitions and publications focusing on art conservation, scholarly publications, international conferences and symposia, and technical and scientific studies.
Grants are also awarded for activities that permit conservators and conservation scientists to share their expertise with both professional colleagues and a broad audience through international exchanges, professional meetings, conferences, symposia, consultations, the presentation of research, exhibitions that include a prominent focus on materials and techniques, and other professional events.
Amount: Past grants have ranged between $5,000-$70,000.
Eligibility: Nonprofit institutions based in the United States, including supporting foundations of European institutions.
