Research and development

We award grants in two sub-categories relating to research and development, enabling both individuals and organisations to access funding for sculpture focused projects.

Long-term research grants

Long term research grants support extended research projects requiring funding for more than one year e.g. a permanent collection catalogue. These grants are available to organisations only. Grants can be awarded up to £20,000. Recent projects that we have supported through long term grants include:

Research and travel grants

Aimed at individual academics, curators and scholars, our research and travel grants support research into the history and interpretation of sculpture. As an applicant, you can apply for funding towards your research costs, including travel, photography and archival access. The maximum grant is £2,500.

For more details of how we assess applicants in each category, please refer to our guidelines before completing the online application form.
