    Tru Vue, Inc. has partnered with the Foundation for Advancement in Conservation to offer grants to support projects in glazing applications for preservation and exhibition of museum and library collections. The goals of this grant program include increasing knowledge of glazing applications, supporting the preservation of collections, promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion, and encouraging the involvement of conservators in museum and library collection projects.

    Funds are to help defray direct project costs, including contract workers, display fabrication, supplies, and publicity. Salary and benefit expenses of full-time conservators on staff are not eligible for funding but may be included in the overall budget to show institutional support for the project.

    Up to four awards will be made each year. Each award includes a cash amount of up to $3,000, and a donation of Optium Museum Acrylic® or UltraVue® Laminated Glass, which include one of the products listed below for use directly related to the conservation and display project. Applicants must determine which material is appropriate for their project prior to applying, and can reach out to Tru Vue at for assistance or to request samples. The material donation excludes any shipping or fabrication costs.

    Applications for the next round of funding are due May 15th. Learn more and apply at Tru Vue Conservation and Exhibition Grants.
