Applications can be submitted at any time of the year, using the Mondriaan Fund’s online application system. You first apply for an account before you can apply. Once your application is complete, please allow for a processing period of 3 months from the moment your application is submitted in full. Grants cannot be awarded retroactively. However, due to the many applications to the fund, the processing time can take longer than expected.
This grant is based on the deelregeling Kunst Presentatie Internationaal (in Dutch).
The Mondriaan Fund staff check the submitted applications and attachments to ensure that they are complete. Once an application is complete, it is submitted to the committee that advises on awarding International Art Presentation grant. Click here to see what happens to your application.
An International Art Presentation grant can only be awarded if the advisory committee recommends the award. If their recommendation is positive, the committee can also make a recommendation concerning the amount of the grant stipend and the period for which this will be valid.
Due to budgetary restrictions, we are unfortunately not always able to award grants to all applications that receive positive advisories from the committee. In this case, the Mondriaan Fund Board asks the advisory committee to prioritise the positive advisories. This means that an application may receive a positive advisory, but a grant is nevertheless not awarded.
To process your application, The Mondriaan Fund needs information. All of this information can be submitted in the application form itself, along with documentation that you can upload. Here below is a checklist that follows the layout of the application form and contains all the information required.
Tip: have all your information ready before you start filling out the online application form. Your attachments can be uploaded as PDF documents. Important: wherever a maximum number of pages is given, do not exceed that number of pages! Additional pages will be ignored.
When you are applying as a visual artist in the Netherlands, please consult the Dutch explanation of the grant 'Kunst Presentatie Internationaal'.
