Jonathan Ruffer Curatorial Grants Programme

From Art Fund:

Since the programme launched in 2012 we have helped 247 curators, scholars and researchers with 225 projects, and as you may know, last year the pot of funding increased by 50%, so we now have £75,000 to offer annually.

The scheme is open to curators and other professionals working with public collections, and through it we aim to help individuals realise their curatorial ambitions, through offering grants for collections-based research and curatorial development opportunities. Full details on the programme and some of the awards we have already made can be found on our website.

We can accept applications under £1,500 at any point throughout the year, while applications above this level are considered at committee meetings three times a year. The deadlines for these are as follows
