A Scoping Grant funds a structured report that incorporates expert advice on a range of areas relating to collections management and the development of your collection. The report will provide an overview of the current status of the collection and analysis of overall condition, significance, existing and potential use, levels of access, and existing documentation. It will give a conclusion with recommendations about next steps and development goals for the service.
The assessment panel will meet in July 2018, October 2018, January 2019 and April 2019. Once the panel has met you will be informed of the outcome of your application within seven working days.
