AIM administers grants for museums to help AIM members with a variety of needs including training, conservation and development. There are different eligibility criteria and closing dates for each grant scheme, so please check each grant programme for further information about how to apply and the priorities for funding for each scheme. You can view all current AIM grants by clicking on the links on the right hand side of this page.

Applications are assessed by committees made up of members of AIM Council and other museum professionals. The committees score applications against the criteria for each scheme so please make sure you address these in your application. The committee are usually considering many applications at each meeting so please keep your applications as succinct as possible.

All grant schemes require membership of AIM, which is open to all types of museum and heritage organisation. You can join AIM here.

We recommend that you contact Justeen Stone, our Grants and Finance Officer, to discuss your project before applying, so we can help you ensure your application fits the scheme you intend to apply to.
