WIRP International Travel Grant Scheme

The Working Internationally Regional Project is offering a small number of travel grants to support non-national museums in England to work internationally.

The travel grants will enable recipients to undertake an international research visit to museums and/or organisations abroad who they would otherwise not be able to meet with face-to-face. The intention is to support non-national museums who are starting to develop international contacts and/or projects, and who are exploring their potential to work internationally in a particular part of the world. Priority will be given to museums whose staff have not previously undertaken international travel as part of their work.

The total budget available for the travel grants is £12,000. Applications will be considered for grants of up to £2,000 per organisation or consortium.

The application form with eligibility and guidance notes can be downloaded HERE.

Applications open: Thursday 15 October 2015

Deadline for applications: 12:00 on Friday 30 October 2015

Successful applicants notified: w/c 16 November 2015
