The Faculty of Science recognizes that travel by Master's and PhD students in the pursuit of research for their theses is important. For this purpose, the Faculty will henceforth offer them grants for travel outside the city when circumstances require it.

*Program temporarily suspended.*

If you are going on a Research Stay, you may be eligible for a travel grant. Eligible students include Master’s with thesis option students; doctoral students and students enrolled in a “fast-track” program, subject to the availability of funds. Consult the form for more detailed eligibility criteria.
