How to make your application

If you experience technical problems, or if you are unsure of whether your project fulfils the programme’s criteria, please feel free to contact us through the application portal or by sending us an e-mail.

Select a support programme

We administer four different support programmes, please review the list and familiarise yourself with the criteria.

Check application deadlines

We award funding throughout the year. Some programmes have more deadlines than others, so please note the dates which are relevant for you and apply in a timely manner. We will not accept late applications.

Create user account and apply

Create a user account to access the electronic applications. A budget with expenses and income in EUR should be attached as an appendix. Nordic Culture Point will not accept applications by e-mail or hard copies of applications. A budget example may be found here.

Accept contract

If you are granted funding, the first step is to log in, accept a contract between us and fill in the bank details.

Write project report

The reports are a way for us to find out what knowledge and culture we support. For more information about the requirements for this process, please view ‘After applying’.

Application deadlines

The application should be submitted at the latest by 15:59 Finnish time on the last application date. If you live in another time zone, we advise you to check the time which applies for you. If you log into the application portal on the day of the deadline, you will see a countdown timer which shows the remaining time until the system will close. Nordic Culture Point will not accept late applications.
