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
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.
Stiftelsen Allmänna Barnhuset (Children’s Welfare Foundation): Website is pretty much all in Swedish
The Wallenberg Foundations: There’s the Marcus och Amalia Wallenberg Foundation, which focuses mainly on grants in the humanities and learning
And there’s also the Knut och Alice Wallenberg Foundation, which focuses on natural sciences, technology, and medicine
Forskningsrådet för hälsa, arbetsliv, och välfärd (FORTE) (Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life, and Welfare):
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.
