Find a conservator

Programming Grant

The CAPC is supporting conservation programming in Canada by offering a grant to assist with meeting the expenses of providing advanced training opportunities for conservators. These include lectures, workshops and collective projects dealing with any aspect of conservation practice.

The applicant must be a member of CAPC and should be responsible for organizing and programming the event. Applications must be focused on advanced level training for experienced conservators, but students can participate in the activity as well. Programs must be planned and promoted to a large group of conservators. This entails advertising regionally and nationally where viable.


The maximum to be awarded in any year will be $1,000. Applicants must submit an application letter which provides a description of the activity, those involved in the organization of the activity, who will be delivering the program, the intended audience and all related costs.

The successful applicant will receive the amount requested prior to the activity date. All promotional content must clearly indicate that the CAPC (logo and full title) has provided funding in support of the activity. Within 2 months following the activity, the recipient must submit receipts/list of expenditures as specified in the application to cover the full amount of the grant along with any funds not used. The recipient must also submit to the CAPC board a 500-word report describing the activity. CAPC may use this report in print and on-line publications.

The selection and the amount of funding will be approved by the Board of Directors. Each year the Board of Directors will review and approve the continuation of the program and the funds available.


The application deadline is March 1st of each year. If no grant is awarded at that time, the next deadline will be June 1st of each year.
