Applications are invited from craftsmen and conservators for financial support. Since 2002 the York Foundation for Conservation and Craftsmanship has helped over 90 individuals across a very broad range of heritage skills. Based in York, the Foundation will consider applications from across the UK. Awards are available of up to £1500 to support training and development and up to £3000 to help established experts take on an apprentice or trainee. Applications are invited by the end of March 2014 and shortlisted applicants will be interviewed in early May.
