The scholarship is for the amount of 2,250 €. The scholarship covers half the participation costs of the course.



The target group of the MUSEUM BOOSTER half scholarship are ambitious staff members in cultural institutions and different career stages who can deepen their skills through the Certified Program Crossmedia Exhibition Development, or those who want to get acquainted with the latest crossmedia developments in the field of exhibition development, such as:

  • staff in museums, collections / archives and similar institutions, mediators of science and art/culture,
  • employees of tourism or leisure learning establishments and event organisers
  • and basically anyone building or updating their skills in exhibition or multimedia project realization.

The target audience of the MUSEUM  BOOSTER Scholarship in Crossmedia Exhibition Development is emerging professionals in various stages of their careers who would benefit from a "crash-course" to accelerate their skills beyond learning-by-doing, or those who seek access to cutting-edge developments in the field.



A jury composed of both institutions decides on the award.
The half-scholarship is eligible for all nationalities. Award criteria take into consideration aspects of relevance, impact and development potential.
