Funding for academic collaborations with museums & galleries

The Museums and Exhibitions Group assesses two bursary schemes, each offering an award twice a year.
This award is primarily intended to foster collaboration between museum professionals and academics (FE or HE affiliated, or independent) towards a research-led event, publication, exhibition or display.
The Individual Award is offered to provide financial assistance for museum professionals to undertake original research towards a publication, exhibition or display.
Applicants to each scheme can apply for any amount between £200 and £5250.
The award is tenable for a maximum of 12 months and can only be used for one project.
Download the Guidelines and Application Form (for both schemes).
