The Department of Art Conservation at the University of Delaware is grateful for the many individuals and institutions who generously support the education and training of future conservation professionals.
THE QUESTERS is an international organization whose mission includes keeping history alive by supporting preservation and restoration of historical places and objects. Another part of the mission is to provide educational opportunities for members and students who would like to pursue careers in historical preservation and restoration. THE QUESTERS Fellowship Program was started in 1997 to aid these students at the master's degree level and is implemented at the Winterthur/University of Delaware.

Sarah Freshnock is THE QUESTERS ninth Fellow, and she will complete her three years of study in the spring of 2023. Sarah is spending her final semester at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. She has been working in the Department of Scientific Research with Research Scientist Eric Breitung on two large projects: a vibration monitoring project, which involves working on an interdepartmental team to monitor vibrations from events at the Met; the second project is the launch of a new wireless data logging system for the collecting and conservation departments. A tenth Fellow will be chosen in the late spring of 2023. The program is completely supported by donations.
Thank you to THE QUESTERS!
