  • Museums Galleries Scotland - Small Grants Fund

    Created: 04/05/2022, Updated: 05/05/2022

    Museums Galleries Scotland's Small Grants Fund provides support for small-scale project activity but it also supports any eligible museums struggling to meet critical, non-project costs due to the depletion of reserves or budgets because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The fund is designed to be flexible so that it can respond to the changing needs of the sector as it recovers from the impacts of the pandemic. It will support small scale project activity that will have impact in any of the following areas:

    • Activity that will build operational resilience.
    • Activity to re-engage with communities and audiences
    • Critical repairs and maintenance that you cannot afford to carry out.
    • Activity to improve environmental sustainability.

    Who can apply

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

    How to apply

    Contact the Grants Team at MGS to discuss your proposal before starting to complete an application. Applications should be made via the online application form.
