Florence Graduate Program Awarded Multi-Year Grant
The Samuel H. Kress Foundation, a supporter of the Florence Graduate Program in Italian Renaissance Art since 2011, has awarded the distinguished program its first multi-year grant, totaling $125,000. "The five-year award aids recruiting by supporting two M.A. students each year with Kress-Florence Legacy Fellowships," says Professor Sally Cornelison G'89 (shown here), the program's director and the grant's principal investigator. "Kress' support helps defray the cost of traveling to and from Italy, as well as living there." Founded in 1964, the Florence Graduate Program is uniquely structured around three intensive terms of study: the first in Syracuse and the second two in Florence.
