AMOT, working as the Army Museums Network in the UK, has funding available from the Arts Council England Army Museums into the Future project to support regional networking activities, with a view to developing a sustainable and resilient network of museums. Part of this funding has been set aside to form a bursary scheme enabling museum trustees, staff and volunteers access events and training they would not otherwise be able to attend. This bursary fund can only be used to attend activity linked to the Army Museums into the Future project - which includes Day 1 evening and Day 2 of the Army Museums Festival. No match funding is required. Applicants for the bursary scheme can apply for monies to cover:
- Travel (standard class)
- Subsistence (maximum <£25 per day per person)
- Accommodation (maximum <£100 per night per person)
- Back-filling an existing position
We will consider all applications but particularly welcome those from museum volunteers, assistant staff, and those usually unable to attend training and conference events.
For further information about how to apply, timescales, the assessment process, and to submit an application - see the bursary scheme survey.
