GRANTS

Grants for travel and international exchanges

In order to promote dissemination of quality Swedish literature and drama abroad and international exchanges in these areas, the Swedish Authors' Fund disburses special grants for travel and international exchanges.

Grant applications are reviewed five times per year, with the following application deadlines: February 1, April 1, June 1, September 1 and November 1.

Normally, decisions are made within two weeks of each respective deadline. Only applications that have arrived no later than the dates above will be considered on each occasion.

This year, the Swedish Authors' Fund will disburse a total of approximately SEK 700,000 in grants for travel and international exchanges. The individual amounts granted are often quite small, normally ranging between SEK 3,000 and SEK 15,000.

Grants for travel and international exchanges are available for all literary professional categories and genres: authors, playwrights, translators, illustrators and journalists in the field of arts.
