Jonathan Ruffer Curatorial Grants Programme: 2017 deadlines

Since the programme launched in 2012, Art Fund’s curatorial grants scheme has helped 247 curators, scholars and researchers with 225 projects. Last year the pot of funding increased by 50%, so Art Fund now has £75,000 to offer annually.

The scheme is open to curators and other professionals working with public collections, and through it Art Fund aims to help individuals realise their curatorial ambitions, through offering grants for collections-based research and curatorial development opportunities.

Art Fund 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:

2nd May 2017                      6th June 2017
