Travel Grant

Deadline: March 6, 2020

Travel grants are designed to provide assistance to individuals to travel outside of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region for professional development or research that will support the telling of Edmonton-based stories.  

The Travel Grant will support up to $4,000 of eligible expenses, including long-distance travel, local transportation, accommodation, meals, and registration and/or tuition fees. 

Who is eligible?

To be eligible, individuals must live and/or work in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region and be actively engaged in heritage work. The main purpose of their trip must be to acquire skills or knowledge that will inform their approach to Edmonton’s heritage, to conduct specific research on Edmonton’s heritage that cannot be conducted from within Edmonton, or to celebrate Edmonton’s untold stories beyond the city’s limits.

Who is not eligible?

This program excludes applications from individuals who are employed by educational institutions and government-owned and/or operated facilities. These individuals can only apply if they demonstrate in their application that the planned travel activity will be of value to the broader heritage sector beyond their professional role. 

Applicants cannot already have been awarded an HCIP Travel Grant during the current calendar year. Applicants must not have any overdue final reports from previous HCIP grants. 

When is the deadline?

Travel Grants are offered several times throughout the year. The first two deadlines for this grant stream are below, with further relevant dates to be announced by late March of this year.

      • March 6, 2020
      • June 5, 2020
