Funding for academic collaborations with museums & galleries
2016 AAH Grants Update
Our existing grants and prizes programme is currently undergoing review. We will announce information about our new AAH awards, grants and prizes for 2017 onwards very soon. Please check our AAH Funding page for further updates.
The Museums and Exhibitions Member Group assesses two grants, each offering an award twice a year.
This grant 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 grant is offered to provide financial assistance for museum professionals to undertake original research towards a publication, exhibition or display.
Applicants for each grant 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.
