Grants for up to £1,500 for visits beyond Europe available

The Heritage Alliance, with support from the British Council, is offering travel grants to support UK heritage professionals to develop mutually beneficial international projects and partnerships for their organisations.

The total amount of funding available is £15,500 and will enable recipients to undertake an international visit to meet with colleagues and share skills, expertise and experience. Applications will be considered for grants up to £700 for visits within Europe and up to £1,500 for visits beyond Europe.

Priority will be given to small and medium UK heritage organisations (with a turnover under £1m), particularly those who are new to international working, and for mutually beneficial visits to countries on the Overseas Development Aid (ODA) list (included in the application form).

Deadline for applications is 17:00 on Friday 15 February 2019. Travel must be completed by 1 November 2019. Full details and how to apply here.
