  • Museums Galleries Scotland - Museum Development Fund

    Created: 04/05/2021

    Museums Galleries Scotland's Museum Development Fund is designed to support museums to make strategic steps towards becoming more resilient organisations in line with the aims of the National Strategy. It will fund projects that will help you to strategically develop your core work in line with their grant outcomes. The grant outcomes cover four areas – collections, audiences, workforce and sustainability. All projects must deliver against an outcome for sustainability.

    MGS will prioritise applications for projects about;

    • Developing digital capacity
    • Re-engaging with communities
    • Workforce capacity and resilience
    • Building resilience
    • Responding to the climate emergency

    Applicants should make sure it is clear how their project has been developed taking into account the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Who can apply?

    Any organisation that runs an Accredited Museum in Scotland can apply. It will accept applications for partnership work where the majority of the project benefits will be for Accredited museums.

    The current round of funding will close at 17:00 on 02 July 2021. A further round will be announced later in the year.

    How to apply?

    Contact the Grants Team - e-mail [email protected] - at MGS to discuss your proposal before starting to complete an application. Applications should be made via the online application form.
