Announcement of stimulus funds for overseas stays for doctoral research fellows
The Faculty of Educational Sciences is also in 2020 announcing funds for doctoral research fellows at the Faculty who plan to travel overseas.
As part of its strategic priorities, the Faculty will make arrangements for our doctoral research fellows to stay at a research institution outside Norway as part of their organized research training. The Faculty has draw up a budget of NOK 350.000 to this. The funds that are being announced are intended to serve as extra funding to cover the costs associated with a research fellow's travel and stay. Fellows can apply for up to NOK 50 000 in additional funding per application. Funds are normally only granted once during the admission period.
Funds applied for in 2020, may also be used in 2021.
The application must include a short version of the plan for the overseas stay, how the stay will benefit the research, the current progress of the research during the admission period, where and when the stay will take place, a recommendation from the supervisors and department head, and an agreement with the unit on what reports etc. the candidate must submit when they return to UiO. The faculty would like the report on the overseas stay to be a collaboration between the candidate and the candidate's supervisor and unit.
A budget for the requested stimulus funds must also be submitted, showing how these funds tie in with the other funding procured for the stay. The application for additional funds must be a maximum of two pages long. The application must be sent to Sumera Majid. Allocated funds will be disbursed as a lump sum, and will be reported to the faculty, according to the plan for use of funds enclosed with the application. Funds that are not used must be repaid to the Faculty.
There is a dedicated pool for this purpose. Based on previous years, there is no set deadline. The Faculty aims to process applications shortly after receiving them.
