Eastern Europe Seed Funding


What is the Swedish Institute Creative Partnerships Programme?
It is a grants programme which is open to Swedish organisations and their partners in our target countries. We grant funding to projects which aim to strengthen democracy, human rights and freedom of expression in the target countries.

With this form you can apply for seed funding. We recommend that you apply for this type of grant to carry out a pilot project or prepare a project which you later intend to scale up to a Cooperation Project. You and your international partner(s) can apply for a grant of up to SEK 200,000 for a project which runs for 12 months at most from the start of the project.

Use this application form for projects which target the following countries:
Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine.
NB: we do not grant funding to projects which include financial support to public sector partners in Belarus (state, regional, municipal).
