Time is running out to apply for a Hampshire Solent Museum Development Training Bursary

There’s a wealth of relevant, high quality development opportunities out there for museum staff, trustees and volunteers. Just take a look at the training calendar section for a taster, you’ll be amazed what’s on offer.

Many involve conference fees and travel expenses, but if your museum is in in Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth or Southampton, the Hampshire Solent Museum Development Training Bursary scheme is in place to help, with bursaries of up to £1,000.

The 2014-15 scheme closes for applications on 31 December 2014 and all funded activities must be completed by 28 February 2015. So now's the time to think about how you could use it to develop your museum's workforce.

Read the guidelines document to find out more and then contact your MDO to talk through your proposed application prior to submitting it.
