TWA Cultural heritage Digitisation Grant fund returns for third year

Share

After providing over £12,000 of support for UK cultural heritage institutions and business archives to digitise their holdings in its first two years, the TownsWeb Archiving Digitisation Grant has returned once more in 2018.

 

The Grant has funding awards of up to £5000 available to help archives, museums, libraries and galleries digitise and open up access to their collections.

 

Any UK heritage organisation is welcome to apply for the funding, simply by completing and submitting the Grant application form. As in previous years, each bid will be scored across three core criteria: heritage need, social and community impact, and research impact.

 

As in previous years, applications will be assessed by a three-strong judging panel made up of John Chambers, chief executive of the Archives & Records Association; Claire Adler, independent HLF mentor and heritage consultant; and Paul Sugden, lead digitisation consultant at TownsWeb Archiving.

The deadline for TWA Digitisation Grant applications is 12th July 2018. Find out how to apply and read more details at:
