Travel Bursaries and Grants

ICOM UK offers two bursary funds designed to help ICOM members resident in the UK and British Overseas Territories engage with the international museum community.

In 2017-18 ICOM UK will also offer two Travel Grant Schemes to support staff from non-national museums to travel internationally to develop mutually beneficial projects and partnerships.

Please note: Travel Bursary applications are considered on a first-come-first-served basis and all funds for 2017 have been allocated.  ICOM UK members can still apply for a Travel Bursary in 2017 if the international conference or event you wish to attend is taking place in 2018.  ICOM UK still has funds to award Camilla Boodle Bursaries for 2017.
