Applying for a grant from the Scottish Museums Federation
Grants are available to members of the Scottish Museums Federation for professional development.
The following rules apply:
■ Applicants must have been a member for at least one full calendar year
■ Grants will not exceed £200
■ Applications must be submitted by the end of December or the end of June
■ Grants are only given for activities which will assist in the professional development of the applicant
■ Applications must be submitted to the Membership Officer
■ Successful applicants may be requested to give a presentation at the Spring or Autumn Meeting
■ Only two grants are made each year
■ The decision of the committee is final
Grants are allocated once a year following discussion and then final decision by the committee.
In some cases the committee will ask for more information from the applicant before making a decision.
Occasionally, additional funding is made available, for example to attend the Museums Association conference or other significant events being held in Scotland. Details of these one-off grants
are announced directly to members as they become available.
