Questions and Answers

How large a scholarship amount can I apply for?

We give doctoral scholarships of SEK 18,000 per month and post-doc scholarships of SEK 25,000 per month.

Can I, as a researcher, apply for research grants?

We primarily award scholarships to doctoral students. Sometimes we can grant research grants. The project leader must document their merits through a certified CV, and the administrative head of the institution, or equivalent, must certify that the project is being conducted at the current institution.

What kind of support can I apply for as a doctoral student?

We award scholarships, which is a tax-free gift for education/studies.

I am a doctoral student and want to apply for your research scholarship. Which account should I specify?

You should specify your own PlusGiro/BankGiro. If none is available, you can specify your bank account number. It is important that you, as a research scholarship applicant, do not specify the research institute's BankGiro/PlusGiro as the research scholarships do not cover the so-called overhead costs of research institutions.

I and research colleagues want to go to a conference. Can I apply for a grant for this?

We very rarely grant funds for conference trips.

Do research scholarships and research grants need to be accounted for?

Yes, we desire a brief account of the project's results after the project is completed. The report is submitted here on our website under the Contact tab.
