Travel grants for PhD students

News: May 10, 2019

PhD students at Sahlgrenska Academy have the opportunity to apply for a grant to cover travel and accommodation expenses (not a course fee) in order to participate in a course outside the faculty. A travel grant can primarily be applied for a PhD course or a course at advanced level (i.e. second-cycle level) which is considered relevant for the PhD project.

Participation in a course given in Sweden can be supported with the maximum amount of SEK 5 000, for a course taken abroad the maximum amount is SEK 8 000. Courses can be taken in conjunction to other activities that a PhD student participates.

The application must contain the following:

  • the course title, the number of higher education credits, the course dates
  • the course syllabus
  • the course schedule (if the schedule is not available, please indicate the number of working hours at the place of study, i.e. where the course will be held)
  • a short motivation why you are interested in taking the course
  • a summary of the PhD project (maximum ½ A4 page)
  • a copy of the ”Course plan” (part of your individual study plan) where the course is listed
  • the budget (=specification of the estimated travel- and accommodation costs).

The application (as a single PDF document) must be submitted to tanja.johansson@sahlgrenska.gu.se no later than 3 June 2019. For questions please contact Tanja Johansson.

Applications will be considered by the Committee for PhD Studies (FUK). Incomplete applications are rejected. A PhD student can only be granted one travel grant per calendar year. 

When the course is completed, an application for credit transfer is to be made according to the faculty’s rules for credit transfer for subject-specific courses.
