As a charity dedicated to the promotion of education and learning in built and historic environment conservation, the IHBC is delighted to be allocated up to £4,000 of funding for bursaries to assist members in attending the 2020 Annual School.
Based on applications and statements of need, we intend to offer up to 5 Full School (Residential) bursary places and up to 11 Day School bursary places to any category of member of the IHBC attending the Institute’s Annual School who demonstrates need and added value in line with the criteria below:
Each case will be judged on its own merits, and assessed in line with the criteria identified above.
As places are available only until funds are distributed, there is no formal closing date. However, applicants are encouraged to submit their bursary application as soon as possible, and while the above criteria are critical, competent early submission is taken as an important demonstration of ‘relevance’ to the applicant.
We will endeavour also to reply promptly although precise timings will depend on the number of applications.
All applications will be kept confidential in line with the terms below.
Priority areas in 2020 bursary awards
Those demonstrating need who are members of IHBC’s Council+ forum, and/or currently serving as IHBC volunteers – including those assisting at the 2020 School.
When booking a place at the School using our online booking system, any bursary, where sought or offered, should be noted in the ‘Notes’ field of the form.
No money will be paid to successful applicants and the decision of the IHBC is final.
IHBC bursaries will not cover travel costs, but separate requests for travel support – including detailed justification – may be made within a bursary application.
Successful applicants not already participating in the School may be asked to add capacity to the work of the School as volunteers, and/or assist in communications before, during or after the event.
Individual bursaries will not be publicised without the express agreement of the recipient.
Many Branches offer independent bursary support, often using more accessible application procedures, so before you apply to this fund you should seek support locally. To fin local links go to https://ihbc.org.uk/branches/index.html
Has your bursary application specified whether it is for the Day School or Full School?
