How to apply


The Swedish Research Council funds research by making different calls. Most calls take place in the spring, but we also have calls at other times of the year. To be able to apply you need a doctoral degree or an equivalent foreign degree, except Project Research Grant within artistic research. The call texts state the terms and conditions that apply for each grant and what should be included in the application.
