The Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis in The Hague (The Netherlands) is offering a 9 to 12 months fellowship/internship in Paintings Conservation, which will take place in the academic year 2021/2022. Applicants can be recent American graduates (no more than 3 years ago) of a conservation program, or American students who require an internship during their last year in conservation training. This opportunity is offered in collaboration with the University of Amsterdam, The Fulbright Center and with the financial support of the American Friends of the Mauritshuis.

The work focuses not only on treatment, but also on in-depth technical research of the paintings. Past applicants have expressed how valuable they found this extra year of experience abroad.
