Grants for IIC Congress

From: Graham Voce <iic<-a>
Date: Thursday, March 6, 2008
Registration for the IIC Congress is now open. IIC is pleased to be
able to offer assistance under three grant schemes to those wishing
to attend the Congress: The Brommelle Memorial Fund and grants from
the Getty Foundation and the Anna Plowden Trust.

The Brommelle Memorial fund: Help for Student Members of IIC

    This fund was established in 1990 in memory of Norman Brommelle,
    who was Secretary-General of IIC between 1958 and 1988. The fund
    is used to provide assistance for students of conservation who
    wish to attend the Institute's international congresses.
    Students are defined as those enrolled in a full-time course of
    conservation training leading to a recognised academic
    qualification. Students may apply at any time during their
    course of study, including their final year or internship.

    Applicants must be currently paid-up Individual Members or
    Student Members of IIC. In order to spread funding over as wide
    a geographical area as possible, it may be necessary to restrict
    the number of recipients from any one organisation.  The Fund
    will normally provide only a part of the total cost of attending
    the congress and it is important that students should attempt to
    obtain additional funding from elsewhere. Successful applicants
    will receive not less than the amount of the Congress Fee.

    Applications must be received at the IIC office by 30 April 2008
    and successful recipients will be advised by the end of May. The
    application form can be downloaded from [the IIC] website, or a
    paper version obtained from the IIC office. Send the completed
    form by post or Fax: to IIC together with a copy of your CV and
    a signed letter of support from your course supervisor.
    Applications will be accepted in English only.

The Getty Foundation

    Thanks to the generosity of the Getty Foundation we are able to
    offer a limited number grants to enable practising conservators
    from developing countries to attend the Congress. These grants
    are not available to students. Application is open to
    individuals from developing countries currently in employment in
    either public or private capacity. Applicants must demonstrate
    in their CV prior formal or significant informal training in
    conservation or conservation science and must have been in
    practice for at least one year since the completion of training.

    A brief statement should be provided in English describing how
    attendance at the Congress would be of benefit to the individual
    and to conservation in his/her country. The application should
    be supported by one senior professional conservator, who should
    be named, with affiliations and contact details, on the
    application document. Applications will be accepted by post,
    Fax: or email and should be received by 30 April 2008.

    Criteria for selection will include:

        The current involvement of the applicant in conservation
        The relevance of the Congress theme to her/his current work
        The potential benefit to her/his career
        The potential benefit to conservation of cultural heritage
        in her/his country.

    Successful and unsuccessful applicants will be notified as soon
    as a decision has been made. Successful applicants will be
    informed of the arrangements for payment.

The Anna Plowden Trust: CPD awards for 2008

    The Anna Plowden Trust welcomes applications from established
    conservators for grants towards the cost of attending either a
    short specialist course or a major conference during 2008. In
    both cases the Trust will consider funding up to 50% of the
    cost. Those applying for attendance at the IIC London Congress
    should currently and at the time of the congress be based in the
    UK and should have more than five years' experience since
    completing their training.

    The closing dates for applications are 17 March, 2008 and 16
    June 2008.

    Anyone wishing to apply should write to Penelope Plowden,
    enclosing a stamped and addressed envelope, at 43 Lansdowne
    Gardens, London SW8 2EL or e-mail her for further information at
    penelopecplowden<-a t->btinternet< . >com.  Application forms can also be
    obtained from <URL:>.
