Apply for funding


Our 2024 call for applications opened on 29 April and will close on Friday 6 September 2024 at 3PM.

To apply for funding from Signatur, you must register for an account in our digital application system.

Signatur does not accept applications by post or email.

We ask all applicants to please read our compilation of Frequently Asked Questions, which contains comprehensive information about eligibility and the application process.


Signatur Foundation Sweden can only support projects run by non-profit organisations operating for public benefit.  If you are an individual seeking support for a music project, you need to find a suitable non-profit organisation willing to host the project.  It is important that this organisation is prepared to take legal responsibility for the project and able to fulfil Signatur’s requirements regarding accounting and communication.


When Signatur accepts new applications, you will find an open call in our digital application system.  Please note that in order to submit your proposal, you must register for an account in our system with your email address as username.

If you have questions about a potential application, you can of course contact us, but we accept proposals only through the digital application system.


Signatur’s board assesses all project proposals based on the foundation’s grant making criteria.  We endeavour to inform all applicants if their proposal has been rejected or invited to the second stage of the application process within two months of the application deadline.


Applicants who proceed to step 2 of the application process will be asked to supplement their proposal with additional information in the application system. Read more about this in the section on the Application Process in our FAQ.

In some cases, the board may ask that the submitted project description be developed or revised with changes to the budget and/or timeline before a final decision is made. Signatur’s Programme Manager works closely with the applicant to assist in the process.


In January-February Signatur’s board decides which projects will receive funding in that year’s Signatur Programme, and new projects can start on 1 March at the earliest.

Prior to the project start, an agreement is signed, regulating the foundation’s and the donation recipients commitments to the project during the first year in the programme (for multi-year projects) or the entire project period (for shorter projects). The terms of the agreement include reporting, evaluation and communication requirements. Read more about this in the section Reporting and Implementation in our FAQ.

For multi-year projects, a new agreement must be drawn up for each project year.


The single most important factor affecting the assessment of applications is how well and efficiently the project meets Signatur’s grant making criteria.

A key factor is also that the applicant has sufficient organisational stability and capacity to fulfil Signatur’s reporting requirements.
