Level Up: Improvement Grants

The SEMD Level Up: Improvement Grant is our standard grant package, open to all accredited/formally working towards accreditation museums in the South East. We encourage applications for projects and/or development activities that contribute to one or more of the Arts Council England (ACE) five goals, and key aims in the South East Museum Development Business Plan 2018-2022. These are listed in the Guidance Notes below.

How much can I apply for?

Individual Museums can apply for a maximum of £2000.

Partnerships or networks can apply for up to £4000.

Priority will be given to applications from museums/partnerships that have not received funding from the South East Museum Development’s grant funding streams in the last two years.
