Museums, galleries and cultural facilities so that they can tell the stories of some of our lesser known historical figures can apply for grants of up to £75,000 through the Association of Independent Museums – Biffa Award History Makers Scheme.
The funding is available for projects that use the life and achievements of extraordinary historical figures to inspire and educate your visitors and users today. The scheme is particularly keen to hear from projects based on women who made history, and history makers from diverse backgrounds.

Previous projects funded include:
- National Coal Mining Museum for England – A Light in the Darkness
