The TownsWeb Archiving Digitisation Grant has provided over £12,000 of support to UK cultural heritage institutions and business archives to digitise their holdings in its first two years. We are delighted to announce that the Grant is back for a third year in 2018.

Any UK archive service is welcome to apply for the funding, simply by completing and submitting the Grant application form, which can be found via the link below. As in previous years, each bid will be scored across three core criteria:

  •        heritage need,
  •        social and community impact, and
  •        research impact.

A three-strong judging panel will again assess applications, comprising John Chambers (CEO, ARA); Claire Adler, independent HLF mentor and heritage consultant; and Paul Sugden, lead digitisation consultant at TownsWeb Archiving.

The deadline for TWA Digitisation Grant applications is 12 July 2018. To find out how to apply and for more details, visit: https://www.townswebarchiving.com/twa-digitisation-grant/
