The Centre for Doctoral Studies in Humanities offers grants for short-term mobility to doctoral researchers. The centre mainly supports participation in research-related international conferences that take place abroad. In addition, applications for participation in international conferences in Estonia or other study and research-related activities (seminars, courses, research in libraries, participation in fieldwork, etc.) are accepted.
A short-term visit lasts up to 15 calendar days (including travel time to the destination and back). The visit can include one day before and one day after the event. The necessity of a more extended stay must be substantiated and certified.
Visits eligible for application:
Doctoral researchers and external researchers of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities of the University of Tartu can apply for the grant if their supervisor is not the holder of a research grant, which allows them to cover costs related to participation in conferences or other study and research-related activities.
Costs that can be covered:
Applications can be submitted via Working Environment of Academic Mobility (to log in, use your UT username and password).
The mobility grant may not cover all the expenses related to mobility and requires, if needed, a co-funding from the respective department. Consent on the co-funding from the unit must be obtained before applying. The doctoral researcher, his/her supervisor and the department representative must approve the application.
If a presentation is held at the conference, a confirmation of acceptance of the presentation must be attached to the application.
NB! UT staff member! The application is also a part of the travel order. Please make the travel order in the Working Environment of Academic Mobility! The predictable costs must be visible in the travel orded comments section. The financial account houlder is Riho Altnurme, financial source PHVHVARENG15.
A doctoral researcher can get support no more than one time.
The maximum grant is 1500 euros per visit.
The mobility grant is based on actual expenses:
1) the expenses paid by the grant receiver are covered based on the travel report/expense report.
2) the grant is paid according to invoices for services (addressed to the University of Tartu). Travel services must be ordered using the University of Tartu public procurement. See detailed information on the intranet.
If the mobility application is accepted, documents about the predictable costs must be sent to the program coordinator (booking confirmation, flight ticket invoice, etc.) within three weeks.
