Find Research Grants in Sweden Here: A List of Databases, Agencies, and Foundations

I know of several good websites to visit when searching for research grants in the US, like the National Institute of Health or the National Science Foundation.

But after moving to Sweden, I wasn’t sure where to find grants. So I wanted to compile a list of places to find research grants, in case anyone else is having trouble finding some.

Here are some databases where you can continuously search for grants:

Länsstyrelsernas gemensamma stiftelsedatabas: Database is in Swedish.

Global Grant: A huge database in both English and Swedish (you may need a library card from someplace in Sweden to log in). If you have an Uppsala library card you can log in here and if you have a Stockholm Library card you can log in here.

If you’re at Uppsala University, you can access grants:

Through the university database here

Scholarships for research and students at UU can be found here

A scholarship handbook from Uppsala Akademiförvaltning can be found here (they also have some student housing, found here)

Below is a composite of different agencies and foundations that give research grants.

The Government Offices of Sweden’s website (Regeringskansliet): provides a laundry list of several external funding sources–some of which will be mentioned on this site, but feel free to use Regeringskansliet website for even more potential sources!

The Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet) provides grants in several disciplines, like the Humanities and Social Sciences, Medicine and Health, Educational Sciences, Natural and Engineering Sciences, Artistic Research, and Development Research.

The Swedish Foundation for International Cooperation in Research and Higher Education (STINT): Like their name implies, you mostly apply for grants through this foundation if you want to try to connect one university with another when doing research (although not all are about connecting universities)

If you know of other good databases, agencies, foundations, etc that provide research grants to people living in Sweden, please feel free to leave a comment.
