what will the museum of the future be like?
Since 1995, the Maritime Museums of Australia Project Support Scheme (MMAPSS) has awarded $665,000 supporting over 200 projects across Australia. I am pleased to announce that in 2010-2011 we have $115,000 of funding to award, our greatest amount to date.
Grants of up to $10,000 each are available to support not-for-profit organisations that care for Australia’s maritime heritage and a variety of project types are eligible for funding in the areas of collection management, conservation, presentation and museological training.
Since 2000, the ANMM has hosted 21 MMAPSS internships. The program assists staff and volunteers from regional and remote organisations to develop their skills and knowledge and create a valuable network of professional contacts during their stay. Two week internships are available across a wide area of Museum functions, with funding of up to $3,000 for successful applicants.
