The Anna Plowden Trust has three main programmes:
Support for the primary training of UK conservation students by offering grants towards course fees.
Thanks to generous support from the Clothworkers' Foundation, we can now offer greatly increased support for CPD opportunities for conservators through our Plowden/Clothworkers' Foundation CPD Grants. Grants are given towards the cost of short courses and of attending conferences (conservation students and interns are not eligible to apply for CPD grants).
A prize awarded as part of the Conservation Awards organised by Icon.
The next deadline for Conservation Training Bursary applications is June 5th 2017 (for bursaries for the 2017/18 academic year).
There remaining 2017 deadlines for the Anna Plowden/Clothworkers' Foundation CPD Grants are: March 22nd, June 5th and September 14th.
