Grant application

The Olof Palme Memorial Fund will each year award scholarships in accordance with the Fund’s purposes: for peace and disarmament, for international understanding, against racism and hostility to foreigners.

To apply for a scholarship or grant from the Olof Palme Memorial Fund, you are requested to fill in our electronic application form (only in Swedish), and submit it at the latest by March 20.

About 6-8 weeks after the respective dead lines, the Board meets to decide on the grants. Within a week after the Board meeting, the recipients chosen by the Board will be informed. Due to the large number of applicants, only those receiving grants are contacted.

From the 300-500 applicants received at each application period, about 25-40 are granted.

The average sum given to individuals is between SEK 3.000 – 10.000, and to organizations between SEK 20.000 – 60.000.
