Support for conference travel or research costs (junior researchers and status position holders)
If you belong to the thematic doctoral programmes as a junior researcher or a status position holder, you can apply for a grant for costs incurring from conference travel, field work or research costs. Grants are given to applicants who have performed well in their research and studies. If your dissertation work is still at the very beginning, the application will receive a negative decision. The final grant sum is based on the application. You can submit an application by the end of year 2018.
The purpose of the grant is to support the dissertation process in an active phase. Eligible costs are e.g. travel costs and translation and proofreading invoices. Devices or supplies will not be funded. If you have very firm justifications for acquiring literature, you can get funding for it. Applications are to be delivered well in advance before reserving travel tickets or ordering a service. The purpose of the grant is to support the quality and progress of dissertations in the thematic doctoral programmes.
Junior researchers: Please contact Henna Mäntylä by email for instructions.
Status position holders: Write an application in your own words in which you start from the following: the title and current phase of your dissertation, predicted grant sum, and an estimate of the dissertation’s date of completion. Please state whether you are a full-time doctoral candidate or working (specify your employer). Your application must also specify any previous grants received for your dissertation work from the university or another party: funding sources, amounts received, and purpose.
In addition to the written application, please fill in the application form annexed below. By filling in the form carefully, you speed up the process. The application must be appended with your supervisor's statement regarding the progress of your dissertation and his/her commitment to supervise your work in the agreed schedule.
The applications should be addressed to the Graduate School, recipient: executive assistant Henna Mäntylä.

The decision is sent to the applicant by e-mail. If the application is successful, the grant will be paid to the applicant's account. Costs incurring from printing, proofreading or translation are paid according to real costs. They are paid to the applicant against receipts, or – alternatively – the invoices are addressed directly to the University of Lapland.
