The Edwin Morgan Trust: The Second Life Awards open call

Open call for applications – The Second Life Awards – a new permanent funding stream from The Edwin Morgan Trust.

Established to support projects that enrich Scottish cultural life and connect with Edwin Morgan’s life and work, The Second Life Awards are open to applications from organisations, collectives, groups and individuals; proposals are invited for projects that will be developed from September 2022 and delivered before September 2023.

There are three levels of support available:

£500 – £1,500 – These grants are intended for projects that are smaller scale, strands of existing projects or one-off events (e.g. a podcast episode, a zine project, an event).

£1,500 – £3,000 – These grants are suitable for projects that require development time and may involve multiple outcomes (e.g. a research project with outcome, a collaborative project, a community engagement project, a larger scale publication project).

£3,000 – £5,000 – The largest grants would support longer term/ multi-pronged projects (e.g. multi-year projects, larger residency or commission/ support projects, international projects).
