Small Grant and Professional Development and Conferences Schemes.

Welsh Government funding enables the Federation to provide two small grant rounds per year. The maximum grant amount is £10,000 (spring) and £3,000 (autumn).

Three independent Federation committee members assess the applications (with the priority given to supporting smaller projects) against a range of criteria from Welsh Government priorities, Accreditation standards and the museum’s Forward Plan. We are also launching our Professional Development and Conference grant scheme.

To apply for a grant, applicants must be a member of the Federation and be an accredited (or working towards accreditation) museum.

This year’s grants are now available – closing date for small grant applications is 24th May 2024

This scheme has been made possible with funding from the Welsh Government through the Culture Division, and with support from the Federation of Museums and Art Galleries of Wales.
