Zibby Garnet Travelling Fellowship Grants

What the grants are for

The purpose of the grants is to make it possible for applicants to visit countries outside the United Kingdom in order to undertake extra curricula conservation projects of up to three months, in one of the following fields:

* Historic buildings
* Historic landscapes and gardens
* Artefacts
* Historic decorative crafts

The grants are intended for practical study and conservation work.

Grants of between £300 and £3,000 have been awarded. A grant can meet almost all the cost of a study placement or make a contribution.

Applicants are responsible for choosing their own subjects and arranging their destination placements. ZGTF encourages applicants to learn new skills and widen their knowledge of their subjects. Preference is given to practical, hands-on projects, carried out under the guidance of a supervisor.

The Trustees look for imaginative and unusual ideas, likely to broaden the applicant’s understanding of their subject and widen their horizons.

Awards are made annually in April/May.
