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 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 (YOUNG MEMBERS): this call is now closed (6 January 2019).
  • ICOM Getty for Kyoto: this call is now closed (November 2018).
  • UMAC Grants for Kyoto (General Call):  apply here until 28 February 2019.
