The Foundation promotes and supports literary projects, particularly through the granting of financial support. Applications for support must be in conformity with the requirements established by the Jan Michalski Foundation and must include the indispensable documents for their evaluation.
The applications for support are assessed by a committee chaired by Vera Michalski-Hoffmann within six months.
The criteria determining the award of support are based on the quality and originality of the project, its literary interest and evidence of a need for financing.
Over recent years, the Foundation has supported a considerable number of projects, both in Switzerland and abroad.
