Interested in an opportunity not listed above?

Full and Associate DPC Members are also welcome to apply for Member Self-Identified Opportunity grants to attend a training and development opportunity that they believe will help build digital preservation capacity within their organization. Details on the eligibility of opportunities for these grants, application process and deadlines are available in the Career Development Fund Application Guidelines.

Additionally, the DPC also invites training providers to discuss the possibility and appropriateness of offering Career Development Fund grants for such opportunities by contacting the Training & Grants Manager.


The Career Development Fund is sponsored by the DPC’s Supporters who recognize the benefit and seek to support a connected and trained digital preservation workforce.  We gratefully acknowledge their financial support to this programme and ask grant recipients to acknowledge that support in any communications that result.
