Application period

Mobility grants can be applied for during the March Round of Applications. Applications should be submitted using the Finnish Cultural Foundation’s Online Application Service. Applications close at 4 pm Finnish time on the last day of the application period. The grant decisions will be announced to the applicants by the end of May. An expenditure grant may only be used for expenses dated from June onwards.

Who May Apply

Individual artist, critics, working groups as well as registered organisations such as associations from any field of art are eligible to apply for a Mobility grant.

Applicable Grants

Mobility grants may be sought for expenses ranging from EUR 2,000 to EUR 10,000. Acceptable uses of the grant include e.g. residency costs, participation in a festival, exhibition project or international collaboration. It is not possible to apply for both a working grant and an expenditure grant in the same application; working must be funded by other means.

Applicants must spend a minimum of one week at the destination to qualify for the grant. Expenses from several trips can be collected under a single application, provided that they belong to the same project, occur within one year and include one trip lasting at least one week.
