In accordance with the objectives of its founder, Colonel Robert Ogilby, AMOT offers grants to Regimental and Corps Museums to help with a range of projects and initiatives; from undertaking governance reviews and creating new education sessions, through to supporting touring exhibitions and staff development. AMOT grants are available to members of the AMOT Network and the programme opens for applications at the beginning of each year. Applicants will be required to submit an initial Expression of Interest, and, if successful at this first stage, will be invited to submit a more detailed application. The Grants Committee will review its priorities each year and issue new guidance regarding the projects which the Trust is keen to support. It is recommended that all applicants read this guidance and make contact with AMOT to discuss their project prior to submitting an Expression of Interest.


Since the beginning of 2020, AMOT has continued to support network members through our dedicated Project Grants programme, including additional funding released in 2021 to help museums through the Covid period. However, due to the impact of Covid, the implementation of these projects and the use of allocated funds has not always gone to plan.

Over the past few years, Army museums have faced temporary closures, shifting priorities of organisations in response to the new challenges which the pandemic brought about, staff turnover and the inability to proceed with plans. There is now a significant number of Project Grants which were awarded but which have not yet been completed or which have had to adapt from original plans. We recognise that this is in spite of the best intentions and the hard work of the organisations who were awarded the funds but who are facing challenges beyond their control.

AMOT is delighted to announce that its grants programme for 2024 is under way, and the opportunity to submit ‘Expressions of Interest’ is now closed. This year it prioritises the general category “Reinterpretation”, but please also see the Guidance document below. Museums have been given plenty of time to consider their bids this year, with the aim of notifying final decisions in October.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with Clarinda Snowball by emailing [email protected].



Often, we highlight one of the projects which took place with support from an AMOT Project Grant. Here, we are highlighting the work of the Manchester Regiment Collection to make the collections more accessible online through their Men Behind the Medals website.
