The Anna Plowden Trust has three main programmes:
Support for the primary training of conservation students in the UK 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).
