University of Delaware
Friends of Rockwood Fund

Award:

The Friends of Rockwood Fund was established in 2014 to honor the service of John Sweeney, Grayce Hess and Phoebe Loss to the Friends of Rockwood. The purpose of this award is to provide financial support, typically up to $1,500, for eligible University of Delaware graduate students in the humanities whose research addresses the material culture of the Victorian era.

About the Friends of Rockwood:

In 1974, the executors of the estate of Nancy Sellers Hargraves (decendent of Joseph Shipley’s nephew, the Bringhurst family,) through the Delaware Chancery Court, gifted Rockwood Manor House to New Castle County. In exchange, the County accepted the obligation of preserving the historical, aesthetic, and cultural character of Rockwood and of providing an example of Victorian life in Delaware to area residents and visitors through a museum setting.

In 1977, The Friends of Rockwood was incorporated to support the County in its effort to preserve and maintain Rockwood. The county did not want to purchase or own the original collection – furniture, accessories, textiles, books, letters, and photographs – which were left in the manor house. The Friends was asked by the County to raise funds to purchase and conserve that collection.

Since the establishment of this non-profit organization, The Friends has had great success in their fund raising endeavors. Most of the original furnishings in the manor house have been purchased, scores of objects restored, and the stone walls along Shipley Road rebuilt. The latest project was the opening of the reinterpretation of the 1895 kitchen for exhibit.

Additionally, they sponsor a variety of special events and provide the volunteer staff to assist with museum projects and programs. All of The Friends’ activities are geared toward increasing visibility, strengthening community support, and providing financial growth.

The 2017 Rockwood Fellow, Sarah Leonard from the Department of Art History, writes :

A grant from the Friends of Rockwood Fund will support my research during September 2017. I will spend the majority of the month researching at the Delaware Art Museum and the Mark Samuels Lasner Collection at the University of Delaware library. I will also make a trip to the Yale Center for British Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. At Yale, I will view landscape paintings and maps which will inform all three chapters of my dissertation. I will also meet with my dissertation’s outside reader, Professor Tim Barringer. At the Metropolitan Museum of Art, I will investigate a full collection of Frederick H. Evans’s photographs of Kelmscott Manor, which are central to my research on the construction of the Kelmscott landscape as a pastoral ideal.

The deadline for applications for support for the current academic year is March 15. We will begin accepting applications one month before the deadline. To apply, prepare a one-page statement, a brief budget, and a current CV. Also, please arrange to have your advisor send a letter of reference to materialculture@udel.edu. Awardees agree to present the results of their research to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute or another appropriate public venue, and to submit a one-page report within one month of completing their research, and no later than the end of the academic year in which the grant funds were disbursed.

Send application materials to materialculture@udel.edu with “Friends of Rockwood Fund” in the subject field.

Finkel Fund

Award:

Thanks to the generosity of Peter D. Finkel and Susan R. Finkel and their endowment of the Finkel Fund in Support of Cultural Internships, the Center for Material Culture Studies is able to offer financial support, typically up to $3,000, for eligible University of Delaware undergraduate and graduate students pursuing a material culture-based internship. Funds are to be used for transportation, lodging, food, and research materials.

In 2017, two University of Delaware students were awarded the Finkel Fund:

Madison Brockman
Winterthur / University of Delaware Program in Art Conservation

“This summer I will be learning from Consuela (Chela) Metzger, head of conservation and previous WUDPAC faculty, and tackling a range of interesting treatments on fascinating objects from the Library’s special collections. Projects include the repair of leather-bound children’s books from the 19th century, well-used maps from the 19th and 20th century, and a truly unique creation of mid-century American material culture: an oversized scrapbook of photographs and other ephemera compiled by the UCLA Marching Band Club. In addition to regular circulating collections material – books that students and researchers can check out and take home – these special collections materials are snapshots into the lives and times of those who made them. Preserving those material artifacts preserves the legacy of the human stories within them.”

Annabelle Fitchner
Art Conservation

“The Balkan Heritage Field School hosts conservation workshops and field schools in Stobi. I will be participating in their mosaic conservation and documentation workshop* from June 3-17, which could potentially provide me with six transferable credits from the New Bulgarian University. The workshop will focus on the conservation of a mosaic in Stobi’s Episcopal Basilica, the oldest Christian monument in Macedonia, which dates to the late 5th century. In addition to the workshop material that covers photo documentation, and both in situ and laboratory treatment of the mosaic, a number of lectures will be given on the history and archaeology of the area and its surrounding sites.”

The inaugural recipient is Spencer Wigmore, who interned at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Spencer writes:

“This summer I will be interning in the curatorial department at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. I will be participating in a fall 2016 exhibition, Thomas Eakins: Photographer. Consisting of over sixty photographs and three finished paintings, the exhibition explores the extent of Eakin’s involvement with photography. Eakins personal collection included numerous self portraits, mementos of social events, friends, and animals, studies of the nude and of landscape, and more. They indicate the constant material presence of photography in his life – as an integral component of his painting and teaching practices, its importance to domestic life, and its role as a medium for the exploration of gender and artistic identity. As a Finkel fund-supported intern, I will help edit wall labels, conduct object research, and organize event programming.”

The deadline for applications for Summer of this academic year is March 15. We will accept application beginning one month before the deadline. To apply, prepare a one-page statement, a brief budget, and a current CV. Also, please arrange to have your advisor send a letter of reference to materialculture@udel.edu. Preference is given to students whose focus is on preservation, conservation, administration, collections management, exhibition, research, and services of museums. Awardees agree to submit a one-page report within one month of completing their internship and no later than the end of the academic year in which the funds were disbursed. Preference shall be given to students who are advanced in their studies.

Rhodes Scholarships

Award: The Rhodes Scholarships are the oldest and most celebrated international fellowship awards in the world. Each year 32 young Americans are selected as Rhodes Scholars, through a decentralized process representing the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Applicants from more than 300 American colleges and universities have been selected as Rhodes Scholars. In most years, even after a century of competition, a Rhodes Scholar is selected from an institution which has not formerly supplied a successful applicant. Rhodes Scholars are chosen not only for their outstanding scholarly achievements, but for their character, commitment to others and to the common good, and for their potential for leadership in whatever domains their careers may lead. The Rhodes Trust, a British charity established to honor the will and bequest of Cecil J. Rhodes, provides full financial support for Rhodes Scholars to pursue a degree or degrees at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom in partnership with the Second Century Founder, John McCall MacBain and other generous benefactors. The first American Rhodes Scholars entered Oxford in 1904. District receptions and interviews are held annually on the Friday and Saturday preceding the Thanksgiving holiday.  Districts will notify candidates regarding interview status at differing intervals, but in all cases no later than two weeks prior to the interviews.  Election announcements are made at the conclusion of the Saturday interviews. For those contemplating application, rules and requirements will generally remain similar from year to year.  However there are two important changes beginning in 2014 – in the personal statement requirement, and with regard to the eligibility for the scholarship of lawful permanent residents who meet the requirements.  Also, some states may move to different districts from time to time in order to keep the number of candidates applying in each district as close as possible.  Applicants should always consult the last page of the Memorandum of Regulations for specific details concerning district composition.

GRAND CHALLENGES: Interdisciplinary Grants Program

Award:

The issues the world is facing today will not be solved through the expertise of any single discipline. Instead, the challenges related to energy, health, education, worldwide migration, the environment, national security, and global development that have been defined by federal funding agencies and major private foundations as “grand challenges facing our planet and all of its inhabitants” will require the efforts of T-shaped professionals: professionals with deep competencies in a single discipline who are also able to conceptualize and facilitate collaborative research that transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries; professionals who, additionally, have “boundary-crossing competencies” in oral and written communication, project management, team-work, critical thinking, and global understanding.

The Office of Graduate and Professional Education invites proposals for the following kinds of collaborative multi-disciplinary projects:

  1. University Seminars on topics of broad interest and contemporary importance;
  2. Cross-college collaborations on graduate curriculum development related to big-picture, high-impact research challenges and geared to the development of T-shaped professionals;
  3. Major conferences and symposia related to arenas of signature multi-disciplinary research and graduate education at UD.

Modeled in part on both the University of Michigan’s Rackham Graduate School “Michigan Meetings” internal grants program and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation’s “Sawyer Seminars” grants program, this OGPE initiative seeks to enhance the University of Delaware’s profile as a graduate institution by incentivizing curriculum innovation and special events programming related to interdisciplinary, multi-disciplinary and transdisciplinary research and graduate education.
