Get the opening date of 19th June 2023 in your diary!
After waiting very patiently, we can finally share the great news! The TWA Digitisation Grant will be opening for its sixth year!
To date the TWA Digitisation Grant has supported over 110 heritage organisations, pledging a phenomenal £108,000 of financial support for heritage projects, extensively safeguarding whole collections of culturally significant archive material. Through a series of main grants, and evolving match funding opportunities, it has been an absolute privilege to protect the UK's most precious collections against damage and loss. But, more than this, all have managed to achieve greater freedom and flexibility in their digital capacity than they ever would have in their delicate, and somewhat restricted, physical format.
COVID-19 was the motivation for a number of changes to the TWA Digitisation Grant last year. While some details have reverted back to their original status, others have remained.
Here's what you can expect if you are applying for this year's grant:
The overhaul of the existing Match Funding provision was a big hit last year, so the pot has returned once again for 2023! For every eligible application received TWA will add £500 to the pot. Claims of up to £1,000 can be made against this, but you will have to be quick. There are just six weeks to make an application from the date the grant winners are announced!
