New Scottish Government Arctic Connections Fund

The new Arctic Connections Fund has been established to help Scottish organisations and communities collaborate with partners in the Arctic. It promotes exchange of expertise on shared issues and aims to raise awareness of common ambitions.

The fund will support initiatives including (but not limited to) seminars and conferences, hackathons and workshops, community learning opportunities and academic research. Projects that set the scene for longer-term initiatives are also eligible.

As well as raising awareness of Scottish-Arctic connections, this fund will encourage further mutual learning in areas – especially those covered in the policy framework – where Scotland and the Arctic share similar challenges and can learn from each other.

Scotland-based organisations can apply for a minimum of £1,000 and maximum of £10,000. The total available budget for the fund in the 2021-2022 financial year is £70,000. 

Applications must be emailed to europeanengagement@gov.scot. Aplications must be received no later than 12:00 (midday) BST on Friday 27 August 2021. An automated acknowledgement will be sent on receipt of applications.
