AIM’s Connected Arts Scholars Brighter Day scheme offers grants to ensure the future viability of museums at risk of closure, losing vital skills and knowledge, or unable to provide effective collections care.

The scheme has a special focus on small museums and others that have found it difficult to access support.

The fund will support education, training, curation, and exhibition projects that address collections care and sustainability of historic and decorative arts collections.

Eligible applicants must be an AIM member and have historic and decorative arts collections that meet the charitable purposes of the Arts Scholars Charitable Trust.

There is no size restriction, but priority will be given to applications from small to medium sized museums with under 50 thousand visitors per annum.

For more information about this grant, and how to apply, visit: AIM Grants – AIM – Association of Independent Museums (

Application deadline: 8th December 2023
