GRANT SITUATION 2020

The Niemi Foundation’s income in 2020 has fallen significantly from previous years. The decline is due to the difficult economic situation and its impact on return on investment.

The drop in income significantly reduces the amount that the foundation can distribute as grants. According to the preliminary policy of the Foundation’s Board, the number of the highest work grants will be reduced from last year’s level of € 20,000 by about a quarter concerning the autumn 2020 applications. Applicants should take the above policy into account when applying for grants.
