Grants for attendance at the IIC 2008 Congress - Deadline extended

IIC is pleased extend the deadline for grant assistance to those
wishing to attend the London Congress, Conservation and Access,
15-19 September 2008 : from the Getty Foundation for those from
developing countries and from the Brommelle Memorial Fund for
students .  The deadline for applications is now Friday 16 May 2008.
For Congress details see

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 16 May 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.

The Brommelle Memorial fund: Help for Student Members of IIC

Established in memory of Norman Brommelle, former Secretary-General
of IIC, 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 16 May 2008 and
successful recipients will be advised by mid June .  The application
form can be downloaded from this 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.
