Applying to us

The Anna Plowden Trust has three main programmes:

  1. Conservation Training Bursaries: support for the primary training of UK conservation students by offering grants towards course fees.
  2. Continuing Professional Development Grants: support for CPD opportunities for conservators by awarding grants towards the cost of short courses and of attending conferences (conservation students and interns are not eligible to apply for CPD grants).
  3. Award for Research and Innovation in Conservation: a prize awarded as part of the Conservation Awards organised by Icon. 

The next deadline for Conservation Training Bursary applications for the 2016/17 academic year has now passed.  The deadline for 2017/18 will be announced early in 2017.

There are four deadlines for CPD grant applications annually, in January, March, May and September.  The final deadline for 2016 is September 15th.

There are more details of our grant programmes on each page of this section, there are also downloadable application forms for you to use.

Do look at our FAQs before applying as these should answer most of the questions you may have.
