Applications are now open for funding to help preserve our unique maritime history for future generations.

Administered by the Australian National Maritime Museum, the Maritime Museums of Australia Project Support Scheme offers funding to help not-for-profit organisations preserve and display objects of national and historical maritime significance.

Grants of up to $15,000 are available for projects in several categories which include collection management, conservation and presentation and education and public programs.

The scheme also supports staff or volunteers from remote or regional organisations learn specific skills to care for and manage maritime collections.

Since it started in 1995 the scheme has provided more than $1.6 million to support over 400 projects across Australia.

Applications close 31 March 2018.
