Applications & Bursaries
Bursaries are available for heritage sector professionals in England supported by Historic England. Historic England is particularly keen to support applications from people with Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic heritage and disabled people working in heritage in recognition of the underrepresentation of these groups in the sector and especially in leadership positions. Historic England will also prioritise applications from smaller organisations in the sector that have limited access to training opportunities.
Closing date for applications is noon Monday 29 October, 2018. A wide variety of other bursaries is also available.
