The Ikea Foundation Switzerland is equipped with three support instruments:
The Ikea Foundation Switzerland provides selected applicants with scholarships for further education. Further education ABROAD is considered exclusively and only if the applicant has already completed an educational programme at Bachelor’s level (or similar). It is also assumed that the beneficiaries have experience of professional practice.
Work or project grants
The Ikea Foundation Switzerland provides financial grants to creative projects such as the development of a prototype for a design object or the presentation of design drafts to a public exhibition. Supporting a project is considered if the intended solution of the task clearly shows an innovative approach.
Grants for events or institutions
The Ikea Foundation Switzerland provides financial grants to institutions that follow the objectives of creative further education in the supported areas, by organising competitions presided over by a panel, for example, and granting prizes or awards. Events must be explicitly aimed at people in education or offer them a platform.
We will be happy to help you submit your application.
Do you have any questions? We will be happy to advise you.
We know: Every project is unique, every event one of a kind. And because innovations arise at the intersection of themes and disciplines, each application starts from a different starting point. That is why we are happy to share our knowledge and experience with applicants. Take the opportunity and contact us a few weeks before the respective submission deadline:
