Conservation Fellowship

A Fellowship Program for Conservation

The Etruscan Foundation Conservation Fellowship is designed to support conservation in all areas of Etruscan and Italic sites of non-Greek Italy from the Bronze Age through the 1st Century BCE.  The fellowship is open to U.S., Canadian and European citizens who are conservators, students enrolled in North American conservation degree programs, or students seeking pre-program conservation experience in preparation for entrance into an accredited conservation program.  First year conservation graduate students and students seeking pre-program conservation experience must be under the supervision of an experienced conservator at the program site.  The Conservation Fellowship may be used for archaeological conservation treatment, analysis, museum study, or research on Etruscan or pre-Roman artifacts contained in collections within the United States or Italy.  The Fellowship may only be used for materials whose acquisition conforms to the Archaeological Institute of America’s Code of Ethics.

Past Fellowship Recipients


The Etruscan Foundation Conservation Fellowship carries an award of $2,500. The fellowship is intended to support all travel, meals, lodging and ancillary materials for the Etruscan Foundation Fellow. Recipients are expected to seek other sources of funding for all additional research expenses. The Etruscan Foundation Fellow will be expected to satisfy the terms of the award. Applications will be evaluated by The Etruscan Foundation Fellowship Review Committee. The recommendations of the Committee will be forwarded to the Board of Directors for final approval.
