APT encourages and supports Conference participation by Latin American and Caribbean preservation professionals, and is pleased to offer travel support to Conference attendees from that region, with the support of a grant from the Getty Foundation. These competitive grants cover up to $3,000 for airfare, lodging and a small per diem.
In addition, support from the Getty Foundation allows the simultaneous intrepretation of Conference paper presentations, keynote sessions and the APT Annual General Meeting in English<>Spanish. The rest of the programme will be presented in English only.
Getty fellowship recipients, along with all Conference participants, will gain enhanced expertise through international exchange. Getty bursary recipients who are not currently members of APT will receive complimentary membership through June 30, 2014, and will have the opportunity to participate in and support the APT Latin America Chapter.
To qualify for a Professional Travel Support Grant, candidates should:
Beneficiaries of the Professional Travel Support Assistance must prepay their expenses for round trip air transportation from their place of residence to New York City, New York, USA, and cover the cost for all ground transportation before arriving in NYC (keep receipts). Ground transportation between the airport in NYC and the Marriott Marquis Hotel will be coordinated and paid directly by APT. APT will pay the Hotel directly for a maximum of four (4) nights. Any additional night at the hotel for persons who only register for the Conference will be the sole responsibility of the grant beneficiary. A per diem for travel expenses will be distributed in cash at the beginning of the Conference; upon presentation of receipts and completion of the Evaluation, reimbursement will be made by wire transfer after the Conference.
Important: Grant recipients who for any reason do not register at the Conference or decide not to attend the Conference will receive no refund.
