Do you have an idea for an alumni event? The Swedish Institute can provide funding for events organised by SI alumni. A maximum of 12,000 SEK can be applied for.

The purpose of the event grants is to stimulate SI alumni to stay engaged in your local community. We want to encourage alumni to create opportunities to meet, exchange knowledge and build competence. The aim is to help the local alumni networks to contribute to positive social change. Events that are open for a broader public are also welcome.

Send us your application before 20 February. All information on how to apply can be found here: https://eng.si.se/areas-of-operation/scholarships-and-grants/si-alumni-network/eventgrant/
