Call for applications: alumni event grants

Do you want to organise an alumni activity? Is there no alumni network in your country to support you?

Alumni in countries where there is no alumni network or no alumni network certified to apply for event grants may still apply for event funding. Two calls for applications open each year, during which time you may submit your event application.

A maximum of 12 000 SEK may be applied for to realise your event idea. With the event grants the Swedish Institute wish to stimulate networking and learning within the alumni network and support alumni in contributing to a fair and sustainable global development. The aim is to help you contribute to positive social change. Therefor, events that are open for a broader public are also welcome.

Detailed information about what can be applied for, who can apply and how to apply can be found in the Application Instructions (availible for download soon).
