ICOM UK, with support from the British Council, is calling museum professionals to apply for travel grants to develop mutually beneficial international projects and partnerships for their organisations.

The 2018-19 ICOM UK – British Council Travel Grant Scheme will enable recipients to undertake an international visit to meet with colleagues and share skills, expertise and experience. The Travel Grant Scheme supports museums who are starting to develop mutually beneficial international projects and partnerships. 

Applications will be considered for grants up to £1,500 per organisation or consortium for visits beyond greater Europe and up to £700 for visits within greater Europe. Priority will be given to non-national museums, museums who have not previously undertaken international work, and mutually beneficial visits to countries on the Overseas Development Aid (ODA) list (see pages 4-5 of the application form). 

Please note that applicants need to make their own travel, insurance and visa arrangements. ICOM UK or the British council can supply a supporting letter if required.

How to apply

Please see ICOM UK website for further information and application form. Applications must be authorised by the applicant’s trustee, chairperson or director. 

The deadline for applications is 09:00 Monday 24 September 2018 and travel must be completed by 11 February 2019
