The Finnish Cultural Foundation annually awards one or more Eminentia grants based on applications to senior scientists or artists.

Grant Application Schedule

Applications close at 4 pm Finnish time (EET) on the last day of the application period.

Who can apply?

Senior researchers and artists are eligible to apply for an Eminentia grant.

What can you do with the grant?

The Eminentia grants are intended for reflective writing about one's own scientific or artistic lifework or experience from it, promotion of interaction between science and the arts, or proactive work to promote the importance of culture in society.

An Eminentia grant may, for example, enable the writing of a book or setting up a retrospective exhibition.

The grant is intended for working full-time on leave from normal salaried employment. A pension is no impediment to applying for a grant. If the grant is applied for to cover expenses, the application must include a clear budget.
