The Ruffer programme provides £50,000 annually for travel and other practical costs to help curators undertake collection and exhibition research projects. Since the scheme’s inception the fund has helped over 160 curators and researchers at over 100 institutions undertake such projects across the globe. Full details on the programme and some of the awards we have already made can be found on the ArtFund website.
Applications under £1,500 can be accepted at anytime, while applications over £1,500 are only considered three times a year. The next deadline is on Wednesday 3 June and the final deadline in 2015 will fall on Wednesday 23 September.
