2015 Cadell Bursary

In November 2015 the SCA announced the relaunch of the Patrick Cadell Memorial Bursary. SCA acknowledges the importance of professional development across a range of areas. We are also aware that budgets for CPD are often limited and even approval for things like travel costs to enable you to attend a free event can be difficult.

Therefore the Cadell Bursary is now accepting applications for all types of CPD costs. This could involve travel costs, workshop or conference fees, or purchasing materials like books and computer software.

Applications for the 2015-16 financial year closed on 21 March 2016. We are pleased to report that four individuals benefited from the bursary; two archive service volunteers, a professional conservator and an archive exhibitions assistant. The Bursary enabled activities including attendance at a conference, a CPD workshop and two Centre for Archive and Information Studies (CAIS) modules.
