Icon Scotland Group is committed to raising the standards of conservation and increasing the fund of skills available in Scotland. The Group is therefore keen to support early-career practitioners in all subject areas in their move towards Icon Accreditation. Members living and working in Scotland are invited to apply for a grant towards the costs of the Accreditation process, thanks to a generous donation to the Group and its predecessor organisation SSCR by an anonymous donor.
Up to four awards of £350 each are available per annum. Grant applications are then assessed by a small panel drawn from the ISG Committee and Observers; all applications are treated confidentially. Successful applicants will then be liable to pay a reduced fee on submission at their applicaiton forms. Successful candidates will be notified within a fortnight of receipt of their application.
Icon Scotland Group grant applicants should demonstrate that the candidate:
- is a full member of Icon and of the Scotland Group
- is resident and working (or actively seeking work) in Scotland
- is not in receipt of more than 50% funding towards total accreditation costs from their employer or other external funding sources
Please fill in the form associated and email it to the Chair of the Icon Scotland Group.
