Don't miss out on this year's Hampshire Solent Museum Development Training Bursary Scheme

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 is now open, with updated criteria and application materials. Read the guidelines document to find out more and then contact your MDO to talk through your proposed application prior to submitting it.
