The new round of PRISM Funding is now open for applications
PRISM (The Fund for the Preservation of Industrial and Scientific Material) awards grants to help acquire or conserve items of importance to our scientific, technological or industrial heritage. All fields of science and industry are eligible, including natural history, medicine, engineering and geology.
The maximum grant amount for projects is £20,000, with a match funding requirement of 10%. PRISM is open to museums, archives and charitable groups in England and Wales and supports a huge range of objects, from the last working Tiger Tank 131 to a papier mache anatomical model of a caterpillar, and everything in-between including trams, helicopters, aircraft, archives, signs, trains and coaches, agricultural equipment, carts, cars and much more!
Applicants to the PRISM Fund do not have to be Accredited organisations but they do need to have charitable purposes and exist for the public benefit. Rather than funding on-going maintenance costs we support specific projects; and we are particularly mindful of the long-term sustainability of access and care to the object.
PRISM is a rolling fund and has no deadlines. For more information see:
