John Edwards Conference Bursary
Are you a volunteer with a historic place or heritage organization? Do you give your time, energy and passion to bring heritage to life? We want you to be a part of the 2021 National Trust Virtual Conference and join in the dialogue at this national heritage learning and networking event. The John Edwards Conference Bursary for Heritage Volunteers can help make that possible!
The John Edwards Conference Bursary was established to honour the legacy of longtime heritage advocate and volunteer John Edwards. The bursary provides much-needed financial support to help volunteers participate in the National Trust Virtual Conference 2021.
We would like to thank Helen Edwards for her generous gift in memory of John C. S. Edwards.
Please review the Terms and Guidelines before applying.

“The programs run by the National Trust for Canada are so valuable to groups like ours. We learn about the best practices that make a difference at all types of heritage places, plus we’re supported by a community of like-minded volunteers and professionals.”
– John P. Mason
“The volunteer work I’ve done at Craigdarroch Castle over the past decade has helped me learn a great deal and make lots of new friends. It led to my writing a book and returning to school for an MA in Public History. It’s also tons of fun!”
– Moira Dann
