Digitisation grant 2017  

Now open for applications until 7th July, following a successful 2016 and excellent applications from archives and other memorable institutions last year, the TWA Digitisation Grant has relaunched in 2017.

The fund offers grants of up to £5000 for UK archives to digitise their collections.

The TWA Digitisation Grant welcomes applications from public, private, business and charity archives based in the UK.

Last year’s esteemed judging panel will return to assess the bids and select the winners: including ARA chief executive - John Chambers; HLF appointed special advisor - Claire Adler; and senior digitisation consultant at TownsWeb Archiving - Paul Sugden.

The Grant can be used to fund the digitisation of bound books, manuscripts, oversize maps and plans, 35mm slides, microfilm/fiche, glass plate negatives, and other two-dimensional cultural heritage media. It can also be used to fund opening up access to heritage collections online.

The deadline for applications is 7th July 2017.
