Grants programme

Henry Moore changed the way we understand sculpture. His Foundation continues to do so today.

In addition to our own programmes at our bases in Hertfordshire and Leeds, we support the growth and development of sculpture through our Grants programme. Henry Moore Grants continue Moore's legacy by supporting sculpture across historical, modern and contemporary registers and seeking to fund research that expands the appreciation of sculpture.

Applications are assessed four times during the year by the Grants Committee.

The next deadline for receipt of applications is 26 February 2020 (open until 23:55).  Applications can be submitted at any time between now and 26 February.

Deadline dates 2020: 26 February; 26 May; 9 September; 9 December.
