The Seed Box, an environmental humanities collaboratory hosted at Linköping University in Sweden, invites applications for seed funding of environmental humanities projects. We expect to distribute 4,000,000 Swedish kronor (ca 449,000 USD/ca. 419,000 Euro) in 2017 for funding of projects through the end of 2018.

We invite proposals for both scholarly and creative pilot projects and initiation grants; writer's or artist's residencies; and other capacity-building activities in the field of environmental humanities. The purpose of the funding is to advance the field of environmental humanities at Swedish institutions of higher education or equivalent administrative organizations in Sweden. Applicants from outside of Sweden must therefore secure the sponsorship or collaborative partnership of a Swedish partner institution for the proposed project.

For further information and to apply, please visit the Seed Box's website, www.theseedbox.se. The Seed Box is sponsored by Mistra, the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Environmental Research, and Formas, the Swedish Research Council for Environment, Agricultural Sciences, and Spatial Planning.
