Project scholarship
“Reopening Hesse innovatively”

This funding measure serves to strengthen novel, innovative work and imparting approaches or forms of documentation from the pandemic period, for example in the pedagogical field, in that these can now be realised, documented or published.

Entitled applicants are

  • individually working art and culture creators of all artistic media,
  • artistically working groups
  • start-ups in the cultural sector
  • cultural institutions, which are particularly keen to support an artist in their selection with their patronage commitment.
    Only for these institutes will the contribution (to be proven) from the cultural package “Reopening Hesse innovatively” be doubled by a subsidy in the same amount.

All applicants must have their first residence or their registered office in Hesse.

The receipt of other support (e.g. Corona emergency aid) does not exclude an application for this scholarship. Recipients of the work scholarship “Mastering the transition” can also apply for a project scholarship.

Up to 1000 individuals á € 5000 and up to 250 groups á € 18.000 can be supported. A jury of experts will decide on the submitted applications in the 3rd quarter of 2020.

Applications can be submitted – exclusively online – via this website from 1–8 August 2020. The link for application will be published on this website as soon as possible.
