European Museum Forum (EMF) is happy to announce that a travel grants programme for those attending the 2017 EMF Assembly and European Museum of the Year Award (EMYA) Ceremony, to be held in Zagreb, from the 3rd to the 6th of May 2017, is now open for applications.

The programme has been initiated and supported by Event Communications Ltd. (Event), a British museum and experience design company. The programme is operated by EMF.

6 travel grants of €750 each will be awarded to individuals for travel to Croatia.

The grants will be awarded by a Selection Committee that includes representatives of Event, EMF Board of Trustees and EMYA Judging Panel.

Individuals belonging to one of the following categories are eligible for the Event/EMF travel grants:

(1) Representatives of museums nominated for EMYA 2017 (NMs): see the list of Nominated Museums at https://goo.gl/fuB6B8

(2) EMF National Correspondents (NCs): see the list of EMF National Correspondents at https://goo.gl/SmKtZO

Applicants are expected to send an informal letter of application addressed to the Event/EMF travel grants programme Selection Committee (see guidelines below). The letter should not exceed one printed page and should include a photograph of yourself. Please provide us with your motivation for applying and/or describe what the bursary would mean to you. It should be sent as an email attachment to Sara Minotti, EMF Administrator, at emf@europeanforum.museum

Deadline for applications: 20 February 2017

The travel grant winners will be announced on the EMF website by the 27th February

The travel grants are not accountable: it is up to a grantee whether the money is spent for travel, accommodation or participation fee. No financial report is required. However, a winner of the travel grant shall attend the Assembly and Ceremony in Zagreb for the whole time of the duration of these events. In the case of no-show, the grant shall be returned to EMF by the grantee and given over to the next person on the list.

While in Zagreb, the winners of Event/EMF travel grants are invited to have a drink with representatives of Event Communications, EMF Board of Trustees and EMYA Judging Panel. Please inform us in advance if you don’t feel comfortable in English.

The winners of Event/EMF travel grants will be requested to complete a short survey after the event in Croatia, describing what they got out of attending EMYA.

Guidelines for applicants:

In the letter of application, please include a photograph of you, indicate to which group of eligible candidates you belong (NM representative or NC), your institutional affiliation and position, explaining why the institution cannot cover your expenses for the trip to Croatia.

If you are an NM representative, please mention your role in the project and whether you are going to participate, personally, in the interview sessions held during the EMF Assembly. Are other representatives of your museum attending the Zagreb event?

If you are an EMF NC, please describe, briefly, your activities as an NC, especially during the EMYA 2017 cycle. Have any museums from your country been nominated for the award? Have you provided any assistance to them during the application process or during the Judges’ visit to these museums?

Please provide us with your motivation for applying and/or describe what the bursary would mean to you, along with any other information you deem relevant.

For questions and additional information please write to Sara Minotti, EMF Administrator, at emf@europeanforum.museum.
