There are a variety of funding options for Scottish-based makers, available within Scotland, the UK or at international level. We have noted a selection of funding options below, and you will also find a regularly updated list of live opportunities for funding. Please contact the relevant awarding agency for full terms and conditions of each award.

Please note that Craft Scotland is not a funding body. We invest in craft makers by providing opportunities such as exhibitions, events, networking, our Meet Your Maker programme and our conference, by posting news and opportunities on our website, and by providing free profile pages for eligible Scottish-based craft makers.
