The Residence Scholarship for the World Heritage site Decorated Farmhouses of Hälsingland (Hälsingegårdar) was established in 2018 and is aimed for individuals who have an cultural, artistic or research idea related to the UNESCO World Heritage List and are interested to connect the World Heritage site Decorated Farmhouses of Hälsingland with other World Heritage sites.

In 2018, the region of Gävleborg, Sweden, created the international World Heritage Residence Scholarship at the World Heritage site ‘Decorated Farmhouses of Hälsingland’.

One aim of UNESCO’s World Heritage Convention is to create links between people and promote international cooperation with peace as a central concept. The World Heritage Residence Scholarship supports these important ideas and aims at generating interest and understanding for humankind’s common memory through World Heritage sites. Gävleborg therefore regularly searches for new ideas to establish artistic and creative contacts between the Decorated Farmhouses of Hälsingland with other World Heritage sites around the world combined with culture, music, art and much more.


  • The scholarship is international and can be applied for by people from all over the world. 


  • The World Heritage Residence Scholarship consists of two parts: a one-month residence at one of Hälsinglands seven World Heritage farms, and a sum of approximately 4.500 Euros (50.000 SKR) to cover living and work expenses for the suggested project.
