What is funded?

The Fund supports defined projects for a period of one year as a rule. Projects do not include funding of the management of the institutions nor to projects already accomplished. The Library-committy evaluates applications and applies special scale for the fund. The number of projects funded is defined by the quality of the projects and funding available each year.


Applications are sent through the Rannis online application-system.

If the institution has already received a grant from the fund a report from the former project has to be sent in with the new application. 

The role of Rannís

Rannis manages the Library fund on behalf of the Library-committee and the ministry of Education, Culture and science.
