Grants The Henry Moore Foundation Grants
International Deadline: September 12, December 11, 2019 – Henry Moore Foundation Grants continues Moore’s legacy by supporting sculpture across historical, modern and contemporary registers, seeking to fund research that expands the appreciation of sculpture.
Applications are considered at quarterly meetings of the Foundation’s Grants Committee, which makes recommendations to the Board of Trustees.
A grant is restricted. You may be asked, at any time, to provide evidence that the grant has been used for the purpose for which it was awarded. Permission must be sought for any proposed virement of the monies.
Applicants should apply for the appropriate category of grant. The five categories are as follows:
1. New Projects: Exhibitions; Exhibition Catalogues; Commissions. The maximum grant is £20,000 but most grants are for less.
2. Collections: Acquisitions; Conservation; Cataloging; Display. The maximum grant is £20,000 but most grants are for less.
3. Research and Development:
a. Long-term Research: for projects that require funding for more than one year, e.g. a permanent collection catalogue. The maximum grant is £20,000 but most grants are for less.
b. Small Research Grants: for research on the history and interpretation of sculpture. Academics, curators and independent scholars may apply for research costs, e.g. travel, photographs, archival access. The maximum grant is £2,500.
a. Post-Doctoral Research Fellowships*: a limited number of two-year grants are available. Please follow the link for information on applying for the 2015-2016 Fellowship.
b. Artist Residencies: the artist must be supported by a host institution for residencies that can last from two to six months. The host institution should apply for the grant. The maximum is £6,000.
5. Conferences, Lectures and Publications: this category supports books and journals, but not exhibition catalogues, as these are eligible under New Projects. The maximum grant is £5,000.
Deadlines for applications typically are in March, May, September, and December.
