Grants for members
Members of Jytte are eligible to apply for small grants for continuing professional development. Possible uses are, for example, attending training and international conference travel. Past awarded grants for travel within Europe have been up to 500 euros and outside Europe up to 900 euros.
Social and economic factors are taken into consideration when applications are assessed, and applications from unemployed and grant-funded members prioritised. Accepting applications from employed members depends on the total number of applications, the number of unemployed and grant-funded applicants, the amount of money requested, and the total amount of money available.
In principle, conference and other work-related travel should be funded by the employer, and researchers currently employed by the university should contact their departments about financial support before applying from Jytte. A similar principle applies to the proofreading costs of doctoral students.
How to apply
Please use the grant application form and attach to it a one-page plan with the following information: 1) what is the grant for (what, where, when, and why) and 2) the total project budget with a concise funding plan. If you are applying for funding towards a conference trip, please let us know if your paper or workshop has been accepted. Please prepare the application as carefully as you would any other funding application.
Please send the application form and the attachment as a single PDF to the membership secretary (antti.ej.lopponen[at] jyu.fi) with “Jytte – grant application” as the subject.

Applicants are informed of the decisions by email. A list of awarded grants will be published on the Jytte website.
Applications are accepted biannually: in the spring and in the autumn. The spring application period is in May and the autumn one in November.
The next application opens 1 November and closes 30 November 23.59 pm.
Please note that grants are not awarded retrospectively. The trip or training must take place after the application deadline. Please also note applicants who have received a grant within the last two calendar years are not eligible to apply.
