The Wallenberg Foundations

Södertörn University has a specific selection process for applying for funding from the Wallenberg Foundations. These financiers require that applicants for their grants have been prioritised by the university’s vice-chancellor.

Well before the deadline, researchers are asked to submit a preliminary application, for which we have produced a checklist. The below information covers the process and the most common regularly announced calls.

The applications round for 2022 calls is now open. If you have any questions about the process or the financier, please contact research advisor Gabriela Hinchcliffe Voglio. The checklist for the preliminary application is available below. Researchers who are prioritised, and may therefore submit a full application to Wallenberg, are offered support with their application well in advance of the deadline.

The preliminary application must be a maximum of three pages (including a one-page CV).
Please bear in mind that this is only a preliminary application and that you are responsible for submitting an application to the financier if/when your preliminary application is approved.

The following information must be included in your preliminary application, written in English:

  • The call to which you are applying (MMW or MAW)
  • The title of your project
  • Purpose
  • Method
  • Time plan and short description of activities
  • International comparison/level (your project in an international context)
  • Expected results, impact and national use
  • Short description of how the application is relevant to the call’s criteria
  • Description of how the expertise of the primary investigator, and any co-investigators, contributes to the project
  • CV (one page). Include email address(es)
  • Complete estimated budget (as an appendix, not included in the total number of pages).

Read this checklist carefully and ensure that you fulfil all the formal quality/funding requirements and criteria.

The head of school must approve the application.

The Wallenberg Foundations

The Wallenberg Foundations (Wallenbergstiftelserna) is the collective name for the public and private foundations that were founded by members of the Wallenberg family or were established to honour the memory of family members.

The collapsible text boxes below present the calls that are relevant to researchers at Södertörn University. These have different deadlines; most are annual, but the call for Wallenberg Academy Fellows is open every other year.

Closed for 2021. The internal process for next year will start in the winter/spring of 2021/2022.

The main focus of the Berit Wallenberg Foundation is to promote scholarly research in archaeology and art history, preferably on subjects up to the end of the nineteenth century. Grants are primarily awarded to research relating to Swedish and Nordic material.

There are three categories: doctoral studentships, large research projects, and small research projects. Large research projects are the only ones with an internal process that requires a preliminary application.

The deadline for submitting a preliminary application will be in April 2022 (the exact date will be announced later), and must be sent to Gabriela Hinchcliffe Voglio. See the above checklist for preliminary applications.

The next application period opens in early 2023 and the nomination deadline is mid-February 2023. The Foundation announces its decision in December. The internal process will begin in the autumn of 2022.
