Grants and Funding

ReaperThese pages contain details of our strategic grants scheme, including the Flagship of the Year award.  National Historic Ships UK's awards are some of the few given to privately owned vessels, as well as those owned by trusts and museums, and offer help with training, attending conferences and making your vessel sustainable.  See the Grants Awarded page for information on the types of awards we have made.

Our guidance manual Conserving Historic Vessels sets out the approaches we expect to see owners and custodians adopting in maintaining and conserving our maritime heritage.  Our terms and conditions have been updated accordingly and our application form now includes questions on how the project relates to the principles set out in the conservation manual.

Also included here are details of the Marsh Award (which offers monetary awards to volunteers who have made a valuable contribution to the conservation of a historic ship).

Information has also been supplied on further sources and major grant-giving organisations.
