About the Scholarship and Fellowship

What is the SPAB Scholarship?

Since 1930 the SPAB has organised a unique nine month training programme in practical building conservation. The Society feels that the best way to learn about construction methods, building materials, their performance and the range of methods of repair available today is out on site. Three or four scholarships are awarded each year, depending on funding available. The closing date for applications is 1st December of the preceding year. The successful candidates start their scholarships in mid-March. Visit our website for more details.

What is the William Morris Craft Fellowship?

Since 1986 the SPAB has organised a unique six month training programme in building conservation for young experienced craftsmen and women.  There is a growing demand for highly trained craftsmen who understand the wide range of skills and methods used in historic building conservation projects. The aim of the Fellowship is to provide grounding in a wide range of traditional skills to help craftsmen bring a strong awareness of conservative repair to their future work. It is also aims to break down the commonly encountered barriers between craftsman and specifier. Visit our website for more details.
