NKS Young Scientist Travel Assistance
NKS would like to announce travel assistance for 'Young Scientists' wishing to attend NKS-R events as well as related non-NKS events that are held within the Nordic countries. Those wishing to claim travel assistance must fulfill the following criteria:
- Applicants must be affiliated to an institution/organisation/university within a Nordic Country.
- Applications will only be considered for 'Young Scientists' at degree, masters, and PhD level or where postdoctoral scientists are within their first 2 years of postdoctoral study or where 'Young Scientists' are within their first 2 years of work experience. A priority will be given to those below the age of 35.
Priority will be given to 'Young Scientists' making oral and/or poster presentations. Applications should be in line with appropriate travel costs (maximum award per claim of 10 000 DKK; total claims for one calendar year should not exceed 12 000 DKK). Travel assistance claims may only cover actual travelling costs (i.e. flights, trains, buses or taxis), hotel accommodation and conference fees. Please note that daily allowance rates will not be covered by NKS. 'Young Scientists' wishing to apply for travel assistance should first contact the NKS-R Programme Manager to determine their eligibility. Only after approval from the NKS-R Programme Manager will claims for travel assistance be accepted. All applicants for travel assistance will be asked to submit a form with their claim giving details of the seminar or meeting and travel costs along with receipts for all expenses incurred.
