The next deadline for the submission of applications is 1st April 2017 and the results will be announced in early July. If you want to plan ahead, the deadline after that is 1st October 2017.
We welcome grant applications from non-national institutions such as county record offices, museums, university archives/special collections, cathedral archives and libraries, as well as owners of manuscripts that are exempt from capital taxation or owned by a charitable trust.
Our grants can cover conservation, binding and other preservation measures, including digitisation (providing it is part of a wider conservation project). The significance of the collection or items to be conserved, as well as the proposed conservation treatment, are carefully reviewed by Trustees when making their decisions.
Applications must be submitted on our application form, which you can download by following this link.
NMCT is the only grant giver solely focused on manuscript conservation and we are keen to spread the benefit of the funding that we have available, so do consider applying.
If you are preparing and application and have any queries please do contact Nell Hoare by following this link.
