IHBC Annual School 2014 Bursaries


To promote education and learning in built and historic environment conservation, the IHBC is delighted to be able to offer up to £2,000 of funding for bursaries to assist members in attending the 2014 Annual School.


Bursary awards will be based on need and circumstances, but applications are open to members of all categories: Full; Affiliate & Associate.




We intend to provide up to 10 bursaries of up to £200 each to IHBC Members attending the Institute’s 2014 Annual School. Each case will be judged on its own merits, and assessed in line with the criteria identified below. Applicants are encouraged to submit their bursary application by 31 March, and we will endeavour to reply as soon as possible after that, though clearly the precise timing will depend on the number of applications.

Please note that individual bursary allocations may be more or less than £200, as we will endeavour to get best value from the entire allocation, and submissions will be judged on a case by case basis. All applications will be kept confidential.


We cannot guarantee to be in a position to consider applications that are received after 31 March.


When booking a place at the School using our online booking system, any bursary application or awards should be noted in the relevant ‘special notes’ field of the form. Awards will be deducted from the final charge attached to the delegate place. No money will be paid to successful applicants and the decision of the IHBC is final.


Successful applicants may be asked to contribute to the organization or running of the event and/or its promotion, depending on circumstances. Specific allocations will not be publicised without the express agreement of the recipient.


To ensure the widest distribution of the benefits of our bursary awards, we do not usually make awards to a single individual more than three years in succession.
