Heritage Seed Fund

The Heritage Seed Fund is an internal grant scheme to support research, knowledge exchange and public engagement with research projects with UK and/or international heritage organisations.

There are two levels of funding available:

  1. workshops: up to £1000 per application to support researchers who would like to develop a collaborative relationship with partner(s) in the UK and/or international heritage sector
  2. projects: up to £3000 per application to enable researchers to develop and deliver projects – these projects can be standalone, or used as proof-of-concept for larger-scale funding applications

There is an additional fund to support conversations (up to £200 per application) which is available to enable researchers to travel for exploratory meetings with potential partners in the UK and/or international heritage sector.

The most recent application deadline was Monday 3 February 2020.
