Grants for Scandinavian Cultural & Educational Programs

ASA contributes funds to support Scandinavian cultural and educational programs including, but not limited to, literature, history, political science, economics, and folklore. Applicants must be individuals or non-profit institutions. ASA gives preference to those affiliated with ASA and other Scandinavian organizations, and whose projects contain unique Nordic content, and are contributions to a deeper understanding of Nordic culture. Those who receive awards are required to present a program at a general meeting of ASA within one year following completion of the project.

  • Description of the project you are requesting funding for.
  • Explanation of why you are uniquely qualified to complete the project, and how the information will be of interest to the Scandinavian community.
