Zibby Garnett Travel Fellowship Grants for 2018

The Zibby Garnett Travel Fellowship is now open to applicants!

Application Closing Date: noon on TUESDAY 13 MARCH – Interviews to be held in mid-April


The Zibby Garnett Travel Fellowship will once again be offering grants to students/apprentices to fund short overseas conservation placements.

Last year twelve students received a shared total of £10,700 to travel to various parts of the world including Italy, Malta, India, Russia and USA; studying practical conservations subjects such as textiles, wooden architecture, oil painting canvasses and archaeological artefacts. 

Placements should be no longer than three months duration. All candidates must attend an interview in person in April in London (travel costs will be reimbursed) and grants will be paid in May onwards. Awards cannot be made retrospectively so travel dates will need to take our timetable into account.  

Full information, including an application form, can be found on the Zibby Garnett website together with Rules of Eligibility. Please contact  if you have any queries.
