Details about the funding
If you are awarded a grant, you will receive a pledge for support; this pledge will remain valid for one year from the date on which your grant was awarded. If your project is not completed within a year, you can request an extension. Extensions are granted for a maximum of one year from the date of your request to have your pledge extended.
Getting a pledge means that the grant will be paid out when we receive the relevant documentation (receipts, agreement, invoices etc.). Please note that the grant does not cover daily allowances.
If you wish to use the grant for a different purpose than the one stated in your application, you must first get permission to do so from the grant committee.
When can I expect a reply?
You will receive a reply to your application approximately two months after the application deadline.
