The grants awarded by the 17 Regional Funds of the Finnish Cultural Foundation are available for application 10.1.-8.2.2019. The Regional Funds support cultural work in their own regions by providing grants and giving awards. In 2019, the Regional Funds will award a total of EUR 12.5 million in grants.

Regional Funds support artistic work and projects, while science grants are primarily intended for dissertations and post-doctoral research.

Organisations can apply for grants to carry out cultural projects.  Priority is given to applicants born or residing in the region, work carried out in the region, work relevant to the region and cultural projects that are particularly important to the region.

As a rule, the smallest grants amount to EUR 2,000. However, study grants may be smaller. The Regional Funds also have their own priorities, such as projects strengthening regional vitality and identity, community spirit and cultural activities for children and young people.

The applications for grants must be submitted electronically in accordance with the application instructions. The names of the grant recipients will be announced at the annual galas of the Regional Funds in spring. 

Only the applications that have been submitted to the Regional Funds through the electronic grant application system are considered.
