June Baker Trust

The June Baker Trust is inviting applications to round 2 of its Emerging Conservators grants scheme, which aims to help Scottish conservators at an early stage in their careers establish themselves in the profession.

If you are between 6 months and 3 years of qualifying you are eligible to apply for a grant of up to £1,000 to fund learning and development activities.  You must be gaining practical experience in a Scottish conservation workplace, or can otherwise demonstrate a strong Scottish connection and commitment to conservation in Scotland.

To apply, you will need to work up a personal learning and development plan that will:

  • build your professional networks;
  • help you gain practical and employability skills; and
  • widen your sector understanding.

The closing date for the current round of the scheme is 31 January 2017.

This scheme has been made possible thanks to the generosity of the Gordon Fraser Charitable Trust  and runs alongside the Trust’s regular scheme giving grants to Conservators in Scotland. The regular scheme will re-open in March with an application deadline of 31st May 2017.
