|Minerva scholarship program for Iraq, Libya, Syria, and Yemen
In response to scholarly concerns of heritage destruction and looting throughout Iraq, Libya, Syria, and Yemen, the Association for Research into Crimes against Art will be offering its Minerva Scholarships again in 2017 for a select number of candidates from these conflict countries for its ninth annual postgraduate certificate program in the study of art crime and cultural heritage protection. Postgraduate candidates with a background or current position within either museums, cultural heritage institutions or universities from these countries are strongly encouraged to apply.
The Minerva scholarship is set aside to equip scholars with the knowledge and tools needed to build the capacity of their home institutions and to advance education about the effects of art related crimes for future generations. Scholarships are limited and awarded through an open, merit-based competition.
Awardees of the Minerva are granted a full tuition waiver to ARCA’s summer-long, intensive professional development postgraduate program in Amelia, Italy for the Summer of 2017.
