  • Museums Galleries Scotland - Small Grants Fund

    Created: 23/11/2021

    This first round of Museums Galleries Scotland (MGS) Small Grants fund will focus on supporting accredited museums to get back on track after an extremely difficult year. It is designed to be flexible so that it can respond to the changing needs of the sector as it starts to recover from the impacts of the pandemic.

    It will cover small-scale project activity, as well as resource and activity that is not project based, providing it will deliver outcomes in one or more of these areas:

    • Building organisational resilience
    • Re-engaging with audiences
    • Critical repairs and maintenance
    • Environmental sustainability

    Who can apply?

    Any organisation that runs an Accredited Museum in Scotland can apply. Partnership applications are welcome and they can accept applications from formally constituted groups of museums with their own bank accounts.

    How to apply?

    Contact the Grants Team at MGS - e-mail [email protected] or call 0131 550 4115 -  to discuss your proposal before starting to complete an application. Applications should be made via the online application form.

    When to apply?

    The submission deadline for the latest round of funding will be 17:00 on 28 January 2022. Decisions on awards will be made by 11 March 2022.
