Conservation Training Bursaries
The Anna Plowden Trust offers grants towards the fees for attending a full-time conservation training course. Applications are considered from those who wish to embark on a career in conservation or from existing conservators who need to broaden the base of their formal training by attending a course for at least one year. Courses that prepare students for a career in conserving the moveable heritage (e.g. paintings, textiles, archaeological objects etc) are eligible. Courses on the conservation of the non-moveable heritage are not eligible (e.g. building conservation).
Applications are invited from individuals; note that if a grant is made the funds will be paid to the institution at which the student is studying.
You can apply by downloading and completing this application form, completed forms should be submitted both in hard copy and as pdfs.
The deadline for applications for the 2013-2014 academic year is June 17th 2013.
You can find more information about training and careers in conservation on the Institute of Conservation (Icon) website.
