To encourage and enrich international partnerships between art museums and to deepen research and dialogue, for the next two years the foundation offers three types of Exhibition Research & Development Grants:
- Convening Grants for Internationally Collaborative Exhibitions;
- International Curatorial Travel Grants for Travel to the United States; and
- US Curatorial Travel Grants for Travel outside the United States.
An institution may apply for a convening and/or travel grant even if it has applied (or plans to apply) separately for general exhibition support for the same project. Proposals for convening grants, travel grants, and general exhibition support are each considered on their own merits; grant approval in one program does not guarantee eligibility or grant approval in the other. Research must take place in time to have an impact on exhibition development.
