Fieldwork in Africa – Travel scholarships

Fieldwork in Africa

Travel scholarships

Under this scheme some 20–30 scholars associated with Nordic universities, colleges and research institutions are sponsored annually for research trips to Africa.

Who can apply? 
Students registered in educational programmes at Nordic universities, colleges and other research institutions in the Nordic countries (= Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden) can apply for the scholarships regardless of citizenship. The scholarships are only intended for MA and PhD candidates.

Which projects qualify for support? 
The scholarships are intended for research and preparation of research projects. Research should concern development issues in Africa and emphasis is placed on the social sciences (anthropology, history, economics, human geography, political science, sociology etc).

Scholarships are intended to cover travel expenses to Africa and to contribute to the cost of local travel and living expenses. Exceptionally, scholarships may be awarded for archive studies in Europe.

Deadline for applications is 31 January 2014.
