Museum: Grants for ICOM members

International Council of Museums (ICOM) supports its network through three major grant programmes:

  • Annual subsidies to International Committees

  • Support to National, International Committees and Regional Alliances in organising special projects

  • Bursary programmes to foster the attendance of young members at the annual meetings of ICOM’s International Committees.

The projects that receive funding are selected prior to allocation on the basis of presentation files. Once the activities have been implemented, ICOM examines progress reports that include financial reports to ensure proper usage of the funds allocated.
