Resources in Preservation Studies
The PSP is supported by the excellent print, audio visual, and electronic resources already available for art, art conservation, art history, chemistry, history, etc. through the Morris Library and its branches as well as the research libraries of nearby museums, historical societies, and archives. We have met with the Director of the Libraries who has written a letter verifying support.
Faculty and Administrative Resources
Strengths and ongoing research of University of Delaware departments may include, depending on faculty availability, scheduling, and sabbaticals: Historic Preservation Planning, Preservation Technologies, Structures and Landscapes, Conservation Research and Technical Studies, Museum Studies, and Preservation of Social and Cultural Context. Sample curricula are attached.
Support for student fellowships
We plan to offer up to five years of support per full-time doctoral student. ($13,000 in fellowship support per student is required for students to qualify for the tuition scholarships through the Graduate Studies office.)
Some departments with research grants may be able to offer support to certain PSP students, according to topic and specialty.
The Coremans Fellowship, now in place, offers about $22,000 annually for topics related to Art and Architectural Conservation and Technical Studies.
