Kress Foundation Accepting Proposals for Conservation Grants
Samuel H. Kress Foundation

The Samuel H. Kress Foundation supports projects that illuminate European works of art and architecture from antiquity to the early nineteenth century.

As part of that mission, the foundation's Conservation Grants Program provides support for the professional practice of art conservation. Grants are awarded to projects that create and disseminate specialized knowledge, including archival projects, the development and dissemination of scholarly databases, documentation projects, exhibitions and publications focused on art conservation, scholarly publications, and technical and scientific studies. Grants are also awarded for activities that enable conservators and conservation scientists to share their expertise with  professional colleagues and a broader 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.

Grants are awarded to nonprofit institutions with 501(c)(3) status based in the United States, including supporting foundations of European institutions.

See the Kress Foundation website for complete program guidelines, an FAQ, information about previous grant recipients, and application procedures.
