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.


Project Grant Highlights
The Manchester Regiment
Men Behind the Medals

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

2023 Project Grants Programme

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 three 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.

As such, the AMOT Grants Committee has made the decision to pause the 2023 AMOT Project Grants Programme. The intention is to allow those museums still working on outstanding projects dating back to 2019 the chance to complete and to then become eligible again to apply for funding when we reopen the programme in 2024. AMOT will remain in contact with those collections who were awarded funding and will continue to provide advice and support to enable them to complete their projects. We will also use the time to review the Project Grants process to ensure that we remain responsive and inclusive for the whole network when the programme returns in 2024.

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

More information on our 2024 Project Grants programme will be made available towards the end of 2023.
