Voluntary Work Placement Fund: call for applications

The Voluntary Work Placement Fund is available to assist AAH Student Members with the cost of volunteering at venues such as museums, galleries and auction houses. Whatever career in art history you are aiming for, voluntary work is an essential way of gaining valuable experience.

The Voluntary Work Placement Fund funds volunteering at museums, galleries, heritage sites or other visual arts environments. To get a list of museums and art galleries that welcome or are willing to consider students volunteers for internships or work placements email with your membership number.
Both advertised and self-arranged placements are available.

The placement may be ongoing but financial support can only be claimed for the period from 30 June in the year of application to 29 June the following year. Both part-time and full-time placements are eligible.

Legitimate expenses include daily travel, meals and accommodation, childcare, training and materials. The maximum amount available per student is £500 for the whole placement.
