Subsidies

An overview of subsidies granted by the Dutch Foundation for Literature.

Translation grants

A foreign publisher can apply for financial support for the publication in translation of a Dutch work of fiction, non-fiction or poetry, a graphic novel or children’s book. Translation grants may also be made available to literary magazines and for exclusively digital publications. This kind of subsidy is intended to encourage foreign publishers to publish Dutch literature in translation.

Travel Costs

After almost one year and a half since the beginning of the pandemic, international borders are slowly reopening, and more and more global citizens are vaccinated against Covid-19.

We feel it is responsible to cautiously plan new in-person events again: we are happy to invite publishers, festivals and literary organisations to apply for a subsidy for the costs of promotional activities of Dutch authors abroad. The grant will cover the travel expenses of the invited author(s) up to a maximum of € 3000,-.

Illustrated Children's Books

In the case of high quality illustrated children’s books, foreign publishers can apply for financial assistance to cover a proportion of the production costs. The amount granted is based on the direct production costs. The maximum sum that may be awarded is € 2,800. If the translator has been approved by the foundation, an additional translation subsidy of max 70% of the cost of translation can be granted.
