Every year, in collaboration with The Mexican Cultural Institute of New York, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund extends an invitation to one student from Escuela Nacional de Conservación, Restauración y Museografía (ENCRyM) and one student from Escuela de Conservación y Restauración de Occidente (ECRO) to a three week residence at Kykuit, the Rockefeller Residency at Sleepy Hollow, New York. During this time, participants work in the restoration of the select Rockefeller collection artworks under professional guidance. This year a student from the University Autónoma de San Luis Potosí  (UASLP) was also invited to be part of this residence.

This year’s students were:

  • María Fernanda Gómez Núñez (ENCRyM)
  • Erika Alejandra Villareal Aldrete (ECRO)
  • Bárbara Rocha Loza (UASLP)
