Training Tomorrow’s Leaders in Preservation
Over the years, we have developed partnerships with prestigious schools and universities in both countries.
Education has always been a primary focus. It is essential to allow students to experience cultural treasures through hands-on internships that help preserve historic châteaux, plantations and gardens or through working in museums and cultural institutions that train the professionals of tomorrow. Our Educational Program gives American and French students from prestigious schools institutions the opportunity to develop cultural exchanges and have valuable professional experiences in the fields of architecture, cultural management, art history, preservation and horticulture.
In 2016 new partnerships were established, including with with the prestigious Ecole Nationale des Chartres, which trains archivists for museums, archives and reseach. Our new host institutions were Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, the Musée de la Dentelle (Lace Museum) in Chantilly and the Musée Sandelin in Saint-Omer (Pas-de-Calais).
For the summer of 2017 we are proud to organize 35-40 internships with stipends for American and French students. We will inaugurate new partnerships with the Musée d’Orsay (Paris), the Château de Chambord (Loir-et-Cher), the Château de Villandry (Indre-et-Loir), the Saint-Omer Library (Pas-de-Calais) and in New York City with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Frick Collection and the Fashion Institute of Technology.
