- The autumn grant application round of 2021 is cancelled.
- Students who have already received the grant in the November 2019 application round are be able to postpone their visit to autumn 2020 depending on the availabilities of the research stations. The duration of the grant is therefore extended until the end of 2020.
Due to the coronavirus situation, grant recipients should inquire about the possibility of grant visits by directly contacting the station they have received the grant for. The research stations make decisions about receiving grant recipient according to their own consideration.
If you receive a grant you have to contact the field station yourself to book the stay and decide the exact dates for using the grant. Please notice that at certain times during the year the field stations can be very busy (May–September) and there might not be space for any grantees at the stations. The grant must be used during the period of time it has been awarded for. Grant recipients are also responsible for handling their transportation to and from the station. The grant does not cover travel costs.
