Apply for the Jonathan Ruffer Curatorial Grants Programme

Since the programme launched in 2012 the Jonathan Ruffer Curatorial Grants Programme have helped 247 curators, scholars and researchers with 225 projects, and last year, the pot of funding increased by 50%, so there is now £75,000 to offer annually.

The scheme is open to curators and other professionals working with public collections, and through it they aim to help individuals realise their curatorial ambitions, through offering grants for collections-based research and curatorial development opportunities.

They can accept applications under £1,500 at any point throughout the year, while applications above this level are considered at committee meetings three times a year.

The deadlines for these are as follows:

  • 27th February 2017
  • 2nd May 2017
  • 25th September 2017

Get in touch programmes@artfund.org or on 0207 225 4822.
