The Centre for European Studies at Lund University (CFE) regularly awards smaller travel grants to students who would benefit from carrying out field studies in connection with their Bachelor’s or Master’s thesis. The overall theme of the thesis must be related to European affairs, broadly interpreted.

Students enrolled at Lund University, who are planning to write their Bachelor’s or Master’s theses on topics related to European affairs during the spring semester 2022, are eligible to apply for the grants. Typically, the grants cover for instance travel costs, and/or a few days of budget accommodation.

The application shall include:

  • A short description of the aim of the thesis, including methodology (maximum 1500 words)
  • A short motivation of the need for the grant, including a detailed budget and the total sum applied for by the student (maximum 1000 words)
  • A CV
  • A letter from the supervisor confirming the potential benefits of the trip for the thesis

When selecting among the applications, priority will be given to students who have particularly well-motivated links between their thesis aim, methodology, and stated needs of the field trip and whose thesis topics are not confined to events or phenomena within the geographical boundaries of only one state in Europe. The grant will be paid out following a successful defence of the thesis.

Grantees must submit a cost statement including the original receipts in order for compensation to be paid out. The amount awarded constitutes the maximum sum that can be granted.

Note! The Centre for European Studies and Lund University follow the decisions, advice and recommendations of the Swedish government to decrease the spread of corona virus/covid-19. The ability of the Centre to give out travel grants is dependent on these recommendations.

Deadline for applications is February 11, 2022.
