Skills Development Grants

Skills Development Grants provide funding to volunteer museums and museum networks for regional or state focused skill development training and networking events.

There are no set categories for funding, and applications for a broad range of projects will be considered.

Previous Skills Development Grants have funded the “Working Spaces for Museum Volunteers” Conferences, regional training workshops on cataloguing software, as well as disaster planning and significance workshops.

Skills Development 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.

Applications must be submitted at least 6 weeks before the activity/event is scheduled to take place.

Amount: Up to $4,000

Closing: 30th October 2022
