The Swedish Institute offers financial support for all certified alumni networks to organise activities. Certified networks can apply for financial support for activities related to the Sustainable Development Goals, Swedish culture, Swedish language or alumni networking. Not sure if your network is certified? Click here to read about local alumni networks and the certification process.

Below you can find the toolkits that are available for certified networks. Toolkits are ready made activity ideas on topics that are in line with the Swedish Institute’s strategies and goals. The toolkits are meant to make it easier for you to host great activities within your local network. You can apply for the toolkits at any time during the year, as long as your network is certified. Please note that you must submit your application at least 5 weeks before the planned activity takes place. You must also report your last event before you can apply for a new grant.

If you have an idea for an activity that does not fit into the frame of any of the toolkits below, please email us at alumni@si.se and briefly tell us about your idea. If we think it is something that you can apply for support for, we will send you instructions for an application.

SI will not give support for activities conducted by an NGO or other organisation without alumni being involved in the actual work.

How to use the toolkits

Within each toolkit there are instructions and a step-by-step manual saying what needs to be done and thought of when you plan and host your activity. We hope to make it easier to divide tasks within the organising team and make sure you stick to the required time frame.

Financial support for alumni networks

The financial grant for the different toolkits varies, depending on the type of activity. The toolkits are to be seen as inspiration – you can make some changes to make the activity more suitable for your local context.
