Doctoral students of the University of Oulu Graduate School are invited to apply for travel grants for national and international conferences, courses, workshops and research visits during 2013.
Travel grants may be used to cover travel and accommodation costs and/or conference, course and workshop registration fees. When awarded a grant to attend a conference, the recipient of the grant must have a poster presentation and/or an oral presentation during the meeting.
The amount of the grant is determined by the destination and the purpose of the trip; up to 500 € may be awarded for national conferences, courses and workshops, and up to 1000 € may be awarded for international conferences, courses and workshops. The amount awarded for research visits will be decided separately, on a case-by-case basis. No student will be awarded more than one grant in a given year. Grants are never awarded retro-actively: they must be applied for before the trip.
The application deadlines 2013 for travel grants are 15 February, 31 May and 30 September.
Students registered in Academy-funded doctoral programmes are required to apply for funding primarily from their doctoral programme.
