UCL Centre for Sustainable Heritage is offering a scholarship,

Historic Royal Palaces is the independent charity that looks after
the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, the Banqueting House,

Care department, through the conservation of the artefacts and
palaces in our care, help tell the stories of the five sites to more
than three million visitors every year.
