The Digital Restoration Initiative at the University of Kentucky is made possible thanks to the generosity of our donors and sponsors. Funding for projects is highly competitive, and gaps in funding delay progress and limit student opportunities. The following partnerships allow this cutting-edge research to continue at the University of Kentucky with UK students at the helm.


Special thanks to the following individuals:

  • Stanley and Karen Pigman

  • Lee and Stacie Marksbury

  • Karen and John Maxwell

  • Mr. and Mrs. John Kyle
