Funding for natural history collections

The John Ellerman Foundation is inviting applications to its Museums and Galleries Fund, which aims to strengthen regional museums and galleries in the UK.

A total of £550,000 of funding will be available for applications which enable new ways of working both for established curators and those just starting out; and ensure organisations can safeguard and advance curatorial skills through a time of development or change. The Foundation expects to award five or six grants of around £90,000 for periods of two to three years, but will consider higher amounts for exceptional projects.

Applications will be accepted for a wide variety of collection types, including visual and decorative arts, and social and natural history collections. There is a two-stage applications process. The closing date for first stage applications is 8 January 2024. The Foundation expects to make first-stage decisions in Spring 2024, with notifications being sent out confirming their decisions in late February. Final decisions will likely be made by the end of May 2024.
