The Balboa Art Conservation Center (BACC) is pleased to offer a full-time, one-year advanced Mellon Fellowship in the conservation of paper-based materials. The fellowship provides an opportunity to acquire advanced-level training in the preservation, conservation, and restoration of a wide range of works on paper, including photographic and bound materials.
The paper conservation fellow will work closely with the conservation staff. The Balboa Art Conservation Center is not a collecting institution; its mandate is to serve non-profit collecting institutions such as museums, historic societies, and cultural collections. Because of this, the fellow will have an opportunity to work on a wide variety of conservation projects from a wide range of collections. In addition to working on conservation, the fellow will also have the opportunity to explore and contribute to BACC’s IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, & Access) initiatives, making access to conservation and cultural preservation more equitable and inclusive.

The 2021 Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship in Paper Conservation is supported in part by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Conrad Prebys Foundation.
