Clare Hampson Scholarship Fund
Publication Grant

Clare Hampson was a founding member and Secretary of the Institute
of Paper Conservation for over twenty years before her untimely
death in 2002. She was deeply committed to promoting professional
development opportunities as demonstrated by her generous legacy 'to
provide for an annual scholarship for the study of paper

To support this aim, an innovative programme is being launched to
encourage individuals engaged in the field of book or paper
conservation, or in related activities to enable them to complete an
article or a chapter of a book to peer reviewed publication

Applications are invited by authors with advanced drafts based on
completed research.  Funding can be sought to support time away from
work, travel, subsistence, translation and/or illustration costs.
The award panel is keen to support individuals who have not yet
published and to facilitate this, editorial support and mentoring
may be provided to successful candidates.  Grants can be sought up
to UKP3,000.

Applications will be assessed by the Clare Hampson Scholarship Fund
Panel, which draws its members from the Book and Paper Group of the
Institute of Conservation. Successful applicants will be expected to
agree in writing that grant payment is contingent upon:

    *   Acknowledgement of the support given by the CHSF in any
        publication or publicity

    *   A summary of the publication to be submitted to the ICON

    *   Evidence of grant expenditure including receipts.

    *   A refund of the grant if completion to publishable standard
        is not achieved.

Eligibility: Individual members of the Book and Paper Group of Icon
who are engaged in the field of book or paper conservation, or in
related fields.

Applicants are required to complete an application form and to
submit a CV. Both should be returned electronically to
