Grants Program

The AMA Grants Program provides funds to qualifying Individual and Institutional Members through the financial support of the Alberta Government.

The 2019 - 2020 Grant Season is now closed. Applications will reopen in August 2020.

Members must be in good standing by the grant deadline to be eligible for funding. As all new members must be ratified by the AMA board, a process that takes a month, please apply for membership with adequate time to ensure you are a full member and eligible for grant application before the appropriate deadline. 


Grants Program categories:


The Institutional grant  provides funding to eligible Institutional Members to complete projects in the following sections:  Museums and Society, Governance and Operations, Collections, and Programming. The Partnership grant is also available for a project involving two or more institutions. This grant encourages applicants to undertake projects that directly respond to needs identified by their communities and demonstrate leadership within the museum sector.

Professional Development 

The Professional Development grant provides funding to eligible Individual and Institutional Members as they undertake professional and personal learning opportunities to increase the overall body of knowledge of the Alberta museum community.

Operational Staffing

The Operational Staffing grant provides funding to eligible Institutional Members to build capacity by contributing to the wages of core museum staff.
