…applicants are assessed primarily on a ‘first-come’ basis…

IHBC trustee and Membership and Ethics Committee Chair Andrew Shepherd said: ‘IHBC Bursaries are available and competition for the funds is always strong. If you do want to apply for the bursary support, start following the web guidance as soon as possible, and with care.’

‘Remember too that some of our Branches also offer bursary support, and you can find out more from them direct.’

IHBC Director Sean O’Reilly said: ‘With bursary funds still available, access to finance cannot be the reason to miss out on developing your learning, skills, networking and professional development with us.

‘So please don’t let a shortage of cash make you miss this unique chance build your future career, to learn more about the complex and challenging issues for heritage and conservation at the interfaces of finance, law and people.

‘Remember too that applicants are assessed primarily on a ‘first-come’ basis – though of course there are some inevitable restrictions on needs – so do apply now.’

‘And if you are not an IHBC member already, you can always strengthen your case by joining us online now, while if on no wage or low wage, you can get up to a 100% reduction in fees if you take the effort and make the case, with details HERE!’
