The Elizabeth Montagu Project has twice received funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (2010-12 and 2014-7). It is supported by Swansea University and Oxford Brookes University.
The project has recently also received philanthropic funding from Joanna Barker, who set up the charitable foundation Elizabeth Montagu Correspondence Online in 2017. In 2018 EMCO received generous funding from the Foyle Foundation for cataloguing, and specifically for research assistance. In 2019-20 the Modern Humanities Research Association awarded EMCO a Research Associateship to enable Dr Jack Orchard to work on the Digital Edition.
