Project grants must be used within two years, and the project must begin during the calendar year in which the grant was awarded.

When applying for a project grant, select the artform within which you are applying. Your selection is your own and will guide the processing of your application. Read more about selecting the artform.

Decisions on the awarding of project grants are made by the national arts councils.
Project grants may be used to cover, for example:

  • material costs
  • production costs
  • working costs connected to the project
  • travel costs

Project grants are not awarded for: 

  • undergraduate studies 
  • other study-related costs
  • amateurs or hobby-based projects 
  • non-fiction literature.

The minimum amount of project grants is 2500 euros. The maximum amount that can be applied for to cover working costs is 6000 euros per person.
