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 2020 National Trust – APT Conference and join in the dialogue at this international heritage learning and networking event.  And the new 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-APT Conference 2020.

We would like to thank Helen Edwards for her generous gift in memory of John C. S. Edwards.

The National Trust is offering 15 bursaries to cover the National Trust – APT 2020 Conference registration fee.  Applications will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis per province and territory. Please review the Terms & Guidelines before applying.
