Members of Jytte are entitled to apply for small grants for maintaining and developing their professional know-how. Grants are provided for, for example, further professional education and international conference travel. This year, we want to encourage our members also to apply for funding towards the costs of other activities supporting their research and their personal development. These include different types of training, education, courses, summer schools and similar activities.
In the decisions, social and economic factors are considered, and supporting the education of unemployed members and grant researchers is prioritised. The maximum grant is 500 euros for conference visits within Europe and 900 euros for visits outside Europe. Applications for funding for training, education, and other types of personal development should include justifications that are clear and explicit. Ideally, they should also include information on how much of the fees the applicant is going to cover.
Deadline for the applications is 6 December 23.59. More information, application guidelines, and the application form can be found on our website: https://tieteentekijat.fi/en/association-of-researchers-and-teachers-of-jyvaskyla/grants/
