The American Institute for Conservation (AIC) and the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT) are hosting a panel on government funding for conservation research and treatment. The goal of this six-person panel is to encourage creative research and treatment projects within conservation and to connect the potential grant recipient to the right governmental grant program. The panel will include three Canadian and three United States giving programs. The group will provide the audience with a brief overview of their grants programs and provide examples of past successful grants. Additionally there will be plenty of time for questions and answers as well as one on one time with potential applicants.
The format of the panel will be a seven-minute presentation from each program. After the opening hour-long presentation, the floor will be open to questions and answers.
