Thanks to the generosity of the Getty Foundation we are able to offer a limited number of grants to enable practising conservators to attend the Congress. These grants are not available to students.
Application is open to individuals from any country not part of Western Europe, North America, Australasia or Japan, currently in employment in either a public or a private capacity. For this Congress, applications are particularly welcomed from east and south-east Asia. 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.
Please note that there is no formal application form for this grant.
Applications will be accepted by post, fax or email and should be received by the 16th May 2014.
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 of the grant.
Successful applicants will be required to submit a short report of their participation, after their return home, to IIC; this will then be sent on to the Getty Foundation.
