Volunteer Museum Grant Program - Leg Up Grants - 2023

ClosedGrant Closed: 29th of October 2023 or until expended Value: Up to $500 Run By: Museums and Galleries NSW Further Information: https://mgnsw.org.au/sector/funding/grants-we-administer/volunteer-museum-grants/leg-up/

Leg Up Grants are quick response skill development grants for workers in volunteer managed museums and Aboriginal cultural spaces throughout NSW. These grants fund various skill development projects including hosting or attending workshops, conferences or seminars in NSW, in addition to networking activities.

Previous Leg Up Grants have funded museum volunteers to attend conferences and workshops, and to gain training in areas of museum practice including paper conservation, oral history, disaster preparedness and significance assessment.

If you are interested in applying keep in mind that:

  • Leg Up Grants are open to museums and Aboriginal cultural spaces (with object collections and displays) with up to two full time paid staff members (no more than 70 hours of paid staffing per week) as well as museum networks such as AMaGA Chapters.
  • The development activity must take place within NSW (or the ACT for those communities located close to Canberra).  If the activity is not going to take place within NSW, contact the Museum Coordinator before submitting an application to discuss any extenuating circumstances.
  • Leg Up Grants will help cover the costs of travel, accommodation and registration.  They will not cover meals.
