The Higher Education Museums and Galleries Fund supports universities with:

  • museums
  • galleries
  • collections

The fund provides support to universities for additional costs incurred by making important resources available to the wider research community.

These museums and galleries provide distinctive benefits to the sector nationally and deliver world-leading or internationally excellent research outcomes.

This fund will be reviewed in 2023. The review will set priorities and future funding levels for the new 5-year funding period beginning in August 2024 to July 2025. Higher education museums, galleries and collections in England will be invited to apply for funding for this 5-year period.
