TWA cultural heritage Digitisation Grant 2017 for UK-based digitisation projects

Share

Following a successful 2016 and excellent bids from archives and other memory institutions last year, the TWA Digitisation Grant has relaunched with a fresh tranche of funding in 2017.

The fund offers grants of up to £5000 for UK archives, special collections libraries and museums to digitise their collections.

Last year’s esteemed judging panel will return to assess the grant bids and select the winners: including ARA chief executive – John Chambers; HLF appointed special advisor – Claire Adler; and senior digitisation consultant at TownsWeb Archiving – Paul Sugden.

The Grant can be used to fund the digitisation of bound books, manuscripts, oversize maps and plans, 35mm slides, microfilm/fiche, glass plate negatives, and other two-dimensional cultural heritage media. It can also be used to fund opening up access to heritage collections online.

The deadline for applications is 7th July 2017.
