Cultural scholarship

Professionally active cultural workers and young cultural practitioners aged 16-25 can apply for Region Dalarna’s cultural scholarship. Every year, we grant a total of six cultural scholarships: two to professionally active and four to young cultural practitioners.

The cultural scholarships are intended to support and encourage good activities in the cultural field. Applicants must live or work in the county or have some form of tie to Dalarna. The scholarships can be awarded to a person or a group. The recipients are notified after the decision by the Cultural and Formative Education Committee in the month of October.

For the professionally active

If you are a professionally active cultural worker, you can apply for the cultural scholarships for the professionally active. We award two scholarships of SEK 50,000 every year.

For young people

If you are 16 to 25 years of age, you can apply for the cultural scholarships for young people. You can apply for support in any cultural area. Young practitioners can also apply. We award four scholarships of SEK 10,000 every year.
