Thanks to the generosity of the Getty Foundation IIC is able to offer a limited number of grants to enable practising conservators from developing countries to attend the IIC 2012 Congress in Vienna.
Please note that the deadline for this has been extended to 31st May!
More details may be found on the Congress pages of this web-site: http://www.iiconservation.org/congress/2012vienna/students/grants
Application is open to individuals from any country NOT part of Western Europe, North America, Australasia or Japan who is currently in employment in either a 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. These grants are NOT available to students.
