Young Artist Grant

 

APPLICATION PERIOD 1 MAY–31 AUGUST 2021

 

The grant for young artists can be applied for by artists who have a qualification in visual arts and are aged 35 or younger. The grant amount is EUR 6,000. All successful applicants will receive their grants in December.

Age limit: The applicant must be 35 years of age or younger at the end of the application period (31 August 2021).

Studies: As a general rule, the applicant must have completed basic studies in visual arts. Finnish Art Society will consider, on a case-by-case basis, any applicants who are about to complete their studies and are already working as artists but have not yet officially graduated (they have, for example, completed one or both parts of their thesis). It is also possible for an individual to apply for a grant if they do not have a vocational qualification, but they have some other form of qualification and are working as a visual artist on a full-time basis.

Previous grants: The grant for young artists can only be received once.

Use of the grant: The grant may be awarded as a working grant or as a project grant. The grant may also be awarded to applicants attending further studies in Finland or abroad.
