Are you involved in the collection, promotion and presentation of Australia’s maritime heritage? 

 The Maritime Museums of Australia Project Support Scheme offers funding of up to $15,000 for projects and $3,000 for internships, plus in-kind (non-cash) support is available to assist with active care and display. 

 What are your organisation’s priorities for the year ahead? Whether you are planning to tackle Conservation, Collection Management or Presentation and Public Programs, support is available.

Many cultural institutions around the country care for maritime items of historical and national significance. The museum supports and encourages efforts to conserve and display unique local objects for today’s audiences and future generations.

Are You Eligible?
