Applying to us

The Anna Plowden Trust has three main programmes:

1. Conservation Training Scholarships

Support for the primary training of conservation students in the UK by offering grants towards course fees.

2. Anna Plowden/Clothworkers' Foundation CPD Grants

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).  Follow this link to find out about the latest CPD grant awards.

3. Award for Research and Innovation in Conservation

A prize awarded as part of the Conservation Awards organised by Icon.  This award is made in those years when Icon holds the Conservation Awards, the last was in 2015.
