Scholarship & Fellowship

Quester members are excited and proud to annually fund a two-year $17,000 scholarship to a graduate student earning a Master of science Degree in Preservation and Restoration at Columbia University and a three-year, $40,000, fellowship to a graduate student earning a Master of Science Degree in Art Conservation at University of Delaware/Winterthur.

SCHOLARSHIP

In 1973, Janet Holley, Quester National President, envisioned preparing scholars for preservation work.  Such an exceptional program was found at Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. Our recipients are chosen from students already accepted into the master degree program at the Columbia University School of Architecture Planning and Preservation.

FELLOWSHIP

In 1997, a three-year Fellowship Program was established at the University of Delaware/Winterthur.  While the Columbia Scholarship Program provides four sectors relating to preservation (design, history, conservation and planning), the Winterthur Art Conservation Program provides an education in archival care and conservation, restoration and proper storage of art, artifacts, and antiquities. Our recipients are chosen from those students already accepted into the master degree University of Delaware/Winterthur Art Conservations Program.
