The Brommelle Memorial 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 attend the Institute’s international congresses. Student members of IIC are required to be enrolled in a full-time course of conservation training leading to a recognised academic qualification. Students may apply for this funding at any time during their course of study, including their final year or internship.
It is not expected that this will cover the whole costs of attending the Congress and recipients should obtain additional funding from elsewhere.
