We are delighted to confirm that following the judging of this year’s awards the successful applications have now been chosen as below:

The judging panel comprised:

 

Two new Woodmansterne Art Conservation Scholarships

Following the judging of the Woodmansterne Art Conservation Awards, it was decided to set up two Woodmansterne Art Conservation Scholarships (worth £5,000 each), to run annually for the next 5 years (October 2015-2019). The scholarships are set up to assist in the funding of UK students in Postgraduate Training or Internships, one at The Courtauld Institute of Art, London, and the other at The Hamilton Kerr Institute, Cambridge.

This is in recognition of the great difficulties facing students in funding their extended study, the growing need for experienced conservators, and the importance of retaining valuable training and expertise in the UK.
