Museum restoration fund
TEFAF Museum Restoration Fund
The TEFAF Museum Restoration Fund is established in 2012 in order to support and promote the professional restoration and related scholarly research of significant museum artworks. Championing art in all its forms, applications for its grants are open to museums from all over the world and artworks from any age. Each year, a maximum of €50.000 will be allocated to projects. The Committee of independent experts usually selects two winners to receive each € 25,000 to support their restoration project.
HOW TO APPLY FOR 2021

All public museums are welcome to apply for the grant before the deadline on April 1, 2021. For the application form to submit your project and any questions, please contact Coco Bannenberg via Coco.Bannenberg@TEFAF.com.

Please note, restoration projects that have already begun are eligible as well and projects need not be finished before they are announced in TEFAF’s communications and/or at one of the fairs in Maastricht or New York.
