The Jonathan Ruffer Curatorial Grants programme provides funding for travel and other practical costs to help curators from museums large and small undertake collection and exhibition research projects within the UK or anywhere in the world.
This unique programme has been established through the auspices of Jonathan Ruffer and Anthony Mould, who share with the Art Fund a belief in the importance of nurturing curatorial skills and supporting serious research. The Art Fund will award grants totalling £50,000 annually through this scheme.
While this programme aims to help sustain curatorial development and collections-based research, it is not intended to replace statutory funding. We hope it will demonstrate the importance and benefits of continued investment in curatorial expertise, and stimulate the provision of funding from other sources.
