ICOM UK – British Council Global Travel Grant Scheme

ICOM UK, with support from the British Council, is offering a number of travel grants to support staff from regional and local UK museums (non-national museums) to travel internationally (beyond greater Europe) to develop mutually beneficial projects and partnerships.

 

The ICOM UK – British Council Global Travel Grant Scheme will enable recipients to undertake an international visit to museums to meet with international colleagues and mutually share skills, expertise and experience.  The Global Travel Grant Scheme aims to support museums who are starting to develop mutually beneficial international projects and partnerships.  Priority will be given to museums whose staff have not previously undertaken international work.

The total budget available for the Global Travel Grant Scheme in 2017-18 is £7,200.  Applications will be considered for grants of up to £1,500 per organisation or consortium.

Please note that applicants will need to make their own travel, insurance and visa arrangements.  ICOM UK or the British council can supply a supporting letter where visa regulations require it.
