Educational Consultancy


Advisory Visits Grant Programme

The Advisory Visits Grant Programme (AVGP) offers support to member museums in need of consultancy. By this means, AEJM is able to provide member institutions with expert advice or in-house training through organising visits by museum experts to our grantees. Please note that grantees will not receive actual money, but an arranged consultancy visit by a skilled museum expert. Applications must be in line with all eligibility criteria.

At present AEJM is not receiving any applications to the AVGP.

Who is eligible?

Applicants must be AEJM member institutions

What is eligible?

AEJM considers museum education as one of the key aspects of the work of Jewish museums in the enhancement of the appreciation, knowledge, and understanding of Jewish culture, heritage, and history by the wider public.

Applications relating to the development of educational policies or programmes, as well as the development of displays for special target groups, such as children departments or special exhibitions for younger visitors, will be considered by AEJM.
