Travel Grant Programme

UMAC has its annual conferences anywhere in the world, and although we make an effort to keep the costs low, we know our conferences can be expensive. In 2019, we will meet in Kyoto, Japan.

In 2016, UMAC created a Travel Grant Programme aimed at increasing participation in UMAC annual conferences. Typically, UMAC grants are small and aim at complementing travel and accommodation costs.

ICOM also has a long-standing travel grant programme for participation of young ICOM members (35 years or younger) in International Committees Annual Conferences (SAREC Programme).

Finally, for UMAC 2019 in Kyoto, a third funding channel is also available for members: the ICOM Getty International Programme 2019.

In short:

  • ICOM Grants for Kyoto (SAREC): eligibility, criteria and submission to be announced soon
  • ICOM Getty for Kyoto: eligibility, criteria and submission  here
  • UMAC Grants for Kyoto: eligibility, criteria and submission to be announced soon
