Museums – Global Travel Grant Scheme

Overview

ICOM UK, with support from the British Council, is offering a number of travel grants to support staff from regional and local UK museums (non-national museums) to travel globally (beyond Europe and greater Europe) to develop mutually beneficial projects and partnerships.

The Global Travel Grant Scheme will enable recipients to undertake an international visit to museums to meet with international colleagues and mutually share skills, expertise and experience.  The Global Travel Grant Scheme aims to support museums who are starting to develop mutually beneficial international projects and partnerships.  Priority will be given to museums whose staff have not previously undertaken international work.

The total budget available for the Global Travel Grant Scheme in 2017-18 is £7,200.  Applications will be considered for grants of up to £1,500 per organisation or consortium.

The deadline for the first round of applications is Friday 13 October 2017 for travel taking place before 30 June 2018.
