Museums in Scotland Invited to Apply for COVID-19 Recovery Funding

Funding is available to accredited museums in Scotland to help them get back on track with activity as they continue to deal with COVID-related financial challenges.

Applications are being invited to a national fund that covers small-scale project and non-project activity by museums in Scotland as they recover from the impact of COVID-19 on visitor numbers.

Any organisation based in Scotland that runs an accredited museum may apply. Applications from partnerships are eligible; however, these should be submitted by a partner organisation that runs an accredited museum. In each case, accredited museums should be the key funding beneficiaries.

Activities must deliver outcomes in one or more of the following areas:

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

Grants of between £300 and £15,000 are available, and cover activity for up to one year from the date of award.

The deadline for applications is 28 January 2022 (17:00 BST).
