Past Host Institutions of Samuel H. Kress Conservation Fellowships administered by FAIC

In 2011, the Samuel H. Kress Foundation and FAIC entered into a collaboration, in which FAIC administers the Samuel H. Kress Conservation Fellowship program.  6 awards are made each year, each in the amount of $32,000.  Beginning in 2018, the full $32,000 must be allocated as a fellowship stipend.  Payroll taxes may be withheld from the $32,000, but any other benefits, travel or education reimbursement, or administrative costs must be met by the institution or other funding.  Grant funds may not be used for indirect costs. Preference will be given to applications that provide for a larger stipend for the Fellow.
