AIM Training Grants are available to support member museums in developing the skills and expertise of their workforce (paid or voluntary).
The purposes of AIM Training Grants are to promote best practice by supporting attendance at conferences and training courses. (Priority will be given to support conference attendance for the first time) Applicant museums must be AIM members and priority will be given to smaller museums receiving less than 20,000 visitors’ p.a.
The maximum grant is £300, and preference will be given to museums that have not previously received a training grant. We cannot support retrospective applications, nor applications for grants for an individual’s personal development, that does not have a direct organisational benefit.
What we can support
We can grant aid fees, accommodation (only where distance travel is involved) and travel costs towards:
Courses, seminars and workshops Museum conferences Museum study visits Mentoring placements AIM National Conference 2019 (applications at the early bird rate must be submitted by 30 April)
Grant application deadlines
Applications for 2019 will be considered on a monthly basis throughout the year.
Applications must be submitted by the end of any calendar month. AIM will respond to applications within two weeks of the end of each month.
For example, we will respond to an application received by the end of March by the end of the second week of April.
If, in exceptional circumstances, you need a quicker response (for example, because the event or opportunity was publicised at short notice), you must mark your application as URGENT when you email us.
To apply for AIM Conference support, applications for the early bird rate only, need to be made by 30th April 2019.
