British Council offers India travel grants

The British Council, through its Connections through Culture programme in India, is offering travel grants for non-national museums to travel to India. The aim of the scheme is to enable UK non-national museums to build and develop institutional links, to share skills and to create joint projects or exhibitions with museums in India. Each grant is sufficient to cover the total cost of a week-long visit to India. The grant scheme is open to all non-national museums in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

For further details and an application form, contact Jane Weeks, Museums & Heritage Adviser, British Council.

The deadline for applications is 18 July 2014 and travel must be undertaken by 28 May 2015.
