June Baker Trust Grant for Emerging Conservators

  • Deadline: January 31, 2018
The June Baker Trust was set up to promote and encourage the development and study of the arts and sciences of restoration and conservation of historical or artistic artefacts in Scotland.

To be eligible to apply you have to be a conservator and able to demonstrate a connection to Scotland through work, birth, living, education or other means.

The Emerging Conservators Grants Scheme gives funding of up to GBP1,000 to support conservators who are in the process of gaining their early workplace experience. Applicants must be within three years of qualifying as a conservator.  2018 will be the final year of this scheme. The funding is to support a learning plan of their own choosing, with activities which help them establish a career path. This learning plan can be on top of or instead of employment. The learning plan must meet the June Baker Trust’s objectives for the scheme which are for recently qualified conservation professionals to:

  • build professional networks;
  • gain practical and employability skills; and
  • widen sector understanding, with the overarching aim of increasing future employability.
