Travel Grants for research stays abroad

IBA offers travel stipends to IBA Members!

Application deadlines are:

•15 January
•15 May
•15 October

Members of the PhD School can receive a travel grant for research stays abroad if the application provides a clear explanation why and how the research stay will benefit the candidate’s project.
This includes reasearch stays at a lab/research group abroad, and does not include conference- and course-related expenses. For information on co-funding travel and accommodation costs to participate in IBA activities please see guidelines here.

The grant typically covers travel and accommodation costs. Food costs are covered if accommodation does not provide access to kitchen facilities. Other costs may be covered if the need for those is clearly documented and is within the maximum funding amount for the specific time period. Please note that we can only reimburse you AFTER the stay is finished, and for the time being we cannot offer an advance. You will need to apply for an advance with your host institution. We prefer that each travel grant recipient applies for a travel advance from their lab/institution/department. Upon return, your home institution can then invoice IBA directly for the reimbursement. 

Members can only receive one IBA research stay grant per year.
Members may apply for several shorter research stays in one application as long as it does not accede the maximum amount per year of 54,000 NOK (incl. travel).
Members who have not received research stay grants previously will be prioritized.

Maximum funding levels:
For research stays up to two weeks, up to 15,000 NOK (incl. travel)
For research stays of a month: up to 30,000 NOK (incl. travel)
For research stays for two months, up to 42,000 NOK (incl. travel)
For research stays of three months, up to: 54,000 NOK (incl. travel)

For research stays of six months: assessed individually.

How to apply:
The application must be in English and include the following:
1. Outline of the planned work at the host institute explaining your motivation and intentions, and how this work will aid the progress of your scientific project. 1 page maximum.
2. A proposed budget.
