In this section of the website we highlight some of the students and practising conservators who have received, or who are still receiving, a Scholarship or CPD grant from the Anna Plowden Trust.
The Trust was only able to award 12 Scholarship in 2014 but more recently, thanks to our successful fundraising, we can usually support 25 to 30 each year. You can find out about some of the individuals that we have supported in the Past Grants: Scholarships section of this website.
Our CPD grants enable conservators practising in the UK to attend courses and conferences in the UK and around the world.Thanks to the generous support of The Clothworkers' Foundation, we are now usually able to award more than 50 CPD grants each year. In 2012 this figure was just 12. Some of these are also featured in Past Grants: CPD Grants.
We are keen to keep in contact with our past grantees and, in particular, to hear news of your developing career and any notable projects or successes. Do email us an update through this site so that we can feature your achievements in this section.
