WW1 Army Heritage Award – launching to help digitise collections & open access

A new funding award launching in April 2017 will provide grants of up to £10,000 for UK-based military heritage institutions to digitise their World War One collections and make them accessible online.

The fund will launch on 3rd April 2017 and will be open to applications from regimental and corps museums, archives, and other organisations preserving army heritage collections focussed around WW1.

The aim of the fund is to contribute to marking the centenary of the First World War and to support army heritage institutions at a time when funding for digitisation is scarce.

Two primary funding grants will be offered. The Digitisation Award, offering £2500 to support the digitisation of WW1 materials; and the Access Award, which will provide up to £10,000 to support the creation of a digital archive website and discovery portal to open up access to digitised military heritage. 

The fund will be accepting applications until 28th April 2017.
