The Natural Sciences Collections Association (NatSCA) is pleased to invite applications to this year’s Bill Pettit Memorial Award. Up to £1,500 of grant money will be made available to NatSCA members every year to support projects including the conservation, access, and use of natural science collections.

Applications are invited under a wide range of categories. Each project will be considered on its own merits by the NatSCA committee and the committee’s decision, including not awarding any money that year, will be final. Grants up to £1,500 are available. To apply please put together a 700 word project proposal, which must include:

  • The name and status (e.g. charity, individual, local authority) of the applicant
  • The proposed outcomes of the project and benefits to the museum
  • Detailed costs
  • Accurate timescale (including any work undertaken so far and the project end date)
  • Details of other funding/match funding already secured for the project

Grants will be considered on an annual basis in January or February.

Deadline for 2015 applications: Friday 11th December

Successful applicants will be announced at the NatSCA annual general meeting and are required to produce a report/article on their project for publication.

Applications are open to NatSCA individual or institutional members only.
