The Egill Skallagrímsson Fund is a registered charity in Britain under the auspices of the Embassy of Iceland. The main objective of the Fund is to promote the culture and art of Iceland in the United Kingdom and for this purpose it provides financial support for artistic endeavours. The first grant was awarded to The Icelandic Take Away Theatre to support the performance of the play "The Lemon Sisters" at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 1997.

Grants are awarded annually in November. Grants are usually given on the basis of artistic merit and financial need.
