Association of Independent Museums: conservation grants

The AIM Conservation Grant Scheme, supported generously by The Pilgrim Trust, is intended to assist AIM’s smaller members with conservation of important objects in their collections.

Accessioned objects in any media are eligible. Whilst we expect museums to have a conservation plan, the object does not have to be the most at risk in the collection. The reason for choosing the object must be made clear in your application. For example, the object may be planned for use in a temporary exhibition. Conservation work should be carried out by a conservator chosen from the ICON register (www.conservationregister.com), unless there are exceptional circumstances where this is not possible.

Closing date is Wednesday 30th September.
