Dumfries House, Scotland. The Prince's Foundation Headquarters.
The Commonwealth Heritage Forum will award four full bursaries to students and professionals from the Commonwealth to attend the Prince’s Foundation Summer School at Dumfries House near Glasgow, Scotland, in July 2023. Part of the Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Commonwealth Heritage Skills (CHS) Training Programme, these four bursaries are funded by the Hamish Ogston Foundation.
Over a period of three weeks, the Summer School provides participants with the opportunity to develop their knowledge of traditional architecture, design, and building techniques and how these can be applied in the 21st century. The teaching format will be varied and will include lectures, drawing exercises, practical workshops, and field trips.
The bursaries are intended for those developing a career in the heritage and conservation sectors, with the desire to use and develop their skills to improve the historic built environment for this, and future, generations. The programme will particularly benefit architects, engineers, planners, builders, craftspeople and those interested in heritage building crafts and architecture, and how these factors respond to the local identity of historic contexts in a timeless and ecological way.
The Summer School starts on Sunday 9 July 2023 and will finish on Friday 28 July 2023. Learn more about the Summer School, including information on eligibility and funding.
