General announcement for Humanities

Available funding 2015: SEK 255 000

Closing date for applications: 31 August 2015.

Scholarships can be awarded to doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers. In the latter category, applicants who were awarded a PhD in the past five years are prioritised. Scholarships above SEK 100,000 will only be granted in exceptional cases. In previous years, young researchers, travel to conferences or archives and field trips have been prioritised. Funding for salaries or leave of absence to prolong the doctoral period is not usually granted. Scholarships are awarded for a maximum period of one year.

Scholarships are not granted for conferences or projects that have been completed by the time the decision is made, which is about three months after the end of the application period.

Provide the name of the head of the institute/faculty, and support your application by appending documents such as invitations, a letter from your supervisor and/or letters of recommendation. Doctoral students must state their supervisor’s name.
