The Foundation’s General Project Funding supports a variety of projects irrespective of their particular topic or artistic field. The funding competence must clearly lie at the federal level. According to the Foundation’s charter, federal funding can only be provided to larger projects with an international scope.

Funding Criteria

If you wish to apply for project funding, first make sure your project is eligible for funding by reading the General Funding Guidelines of the Federal Cultural Foundation and the Funding Criteria for General Project Funding.

General Project Funding will only consider projects that require at least 50,000 euros and have at least 20 percent of their entire costs secured through personal capital and/or third-party financing. Only innovative projects with an international context can receive General Project Funding from the Federal Cultural Foundation.

Submission deadline for applications

The submission deadline for the next Jury session is 31 January 2023.

The following jury session will take place in autumn 2022 at which the jury will consider applications submitted prior to 31 July 2022.
