Round 2017-1 was the final round of grants
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark’s funding of the individual travel grants to Danish Master students terminated in 2017. Due to this priority, the round 2017-1 of Call for Applications to travel grants was the final to be applied for through Danida Fellowship Centre.
PRESENTLY AWARDED GRANTS : All reporting from applicants with awarded grants must be processed and finalized within 2018.
Future funding of travel grants is possible in Danida research collaboration projects
Travel grants for Master students enrolled at Danish institutions for higher education doing field studies as part of their Master thesis can be included in the research collaboration projects granted for 2018, i.e. projects in Danida priority countries (Window 1) and projects in growth and transition countries (Window 2). Such travel grants must be used for the student to visit the project partner and carry out the field studies within the scope of the project. The list research collaboration projects awarded for 2018 (Window1 and Window 2) will be available at our webpage during spring 2018. (See under Project General Information – Awarded projects ). The travel grants will have to be applied for, financed, and administered by the research collaboration projects from 2018.
Until 2017, one of the conditions was that the field study trip had to take place in a developing country, which is in countries with a GNI value less than USD 3,300 per capita, being the threshold for being a developing country, as set by the World Bank. Link to: List of countries’ GNI values for 2015, as stated in the Conditions, page 3.
2017 Reporting Requirements and Guidelines:
Latest two weeks after your return to Denmark after the field study trip, recipients of travel grants must submit a complete reporting and accounts concerning the field study by letter to DFC.
In case you have returned to Denmark from your field study trip already before your application has been assessed and you have received a Letter of Grant by e-mail from DFC, your reporting will to be handed over to DFC within two weeks from the date of the Letter of Grant.
Please adhere to the conditions of reporting and make notice of eligible costs, stated in the Application and Reporting Guidelines for Travel Grants.
Forms to be used for the reporting:
- Report Form for Travel Grants
- Financial accounting form. All the expenses covered must be “eligible costs” and documented for by original vouchers stating the amount of the expense – very important for accounting reasons according to the Danish Bookkeeping Act.
- Field study report (please make a Word document of max. two pages in English language).
Please notify DFC by e-mail to email@example.com when you have posted the report letter. You are also most welcome to hand in the report letter to DFC’s reception desk.
Abstracts of thesis: After the Master thesis has been handed in, an abstract have to be submitted by e-mail to Danida Fellowship Centre at firstname.lastname@example.org. This abstract will be published at the Danida Research Portal and thereby giving the students an opportunity to communicate the findings broadly.
