Museums Galleries Scotland - Small Grants Fund
This first round of the Museum Galleries Scotland's (MGS) Small Grants Fund will focus on supporting accredited museums to get back on track after an extremely difficult year. It is designed to be flexible so that it can respond to the changing needs of the sector as it starts to recover from the impacts of the pandemic.
It will cover small-scale project activity, as well as resource and activity that is not project-based, providing it will deliver outcomes in one or more of these areas:
Building organisational resilience
Re-engaging with audiences
Critical repairs and maintenance
What it can't fund:
Core operating costs
Full cost recovery
Acquisitions of collections
Work that has already started, or will start before our published decision date, other than preparatory work to identify scope
Any more than 5% contingency
Who can apply?
Any organisation that runs an Accredited Museum in Scotland can apply. Partnership applications are welcome and they can accept applications from formally constituted groups of museums with their own bank accounts.
For more information/to make an application, please visit MGS's website.
The first round of funding will open for applications from 30 April and the final submission deadline will be 17:00 on Friday 11 June 2021.
