Apply for funding

Together we can create something world-class.

Are you interested in applying for funding or grants for your project? We are happy to hear from you! Here you will find all the information you need to apply. You can apply for funding at a number of specified times of the year, either for a event/conference or for a socially beneficial initiative in Uppsala.


This is how your application is handled

Once we have received your application, it is initially evaluated by the network’s project manager based on a set number of criteria. Requirements for focus, sustainability, content and knowledge are some of the general assessment criteria. In order to be granted funding or a grant, a number of these criteria must be met.

Your approved application is then prepared as a meeting document and sent to selected representatives within World Class Uppsala, prior to the network’s joint decision-making meetings. Decision-making meetings take place four times a year. The members of the network together decide which applicants to support, and which sums will be paid out.

The day after the decision-making meeting, a written decision is sent to the organizers who have been granted funding and the amount of the grant or subsidy. Applicants who are not granted funding will also receive a written decision of rejection. Grants awarded to community beneficial initiatives are paid out in connection with the decision, while support for events is paid out after implementation.

Applicants who have been granted funding must, after implementation, make a written follow-up based on a questionnaire that clearly states how funding or grants have been used and distributed to create the desired effect. Documentation in the form of receipts and invoices, is also requested in the follow-up. Follow-ups are approved by the project coordinator.
