The UI’s Research Fund – Travel Grants

The travel grants are intended to assist recipients with travel costs regarding conferences abroad. The applicant is expected to have a presentation or other academic contribution at the conference he/she applies for.

Attn! Due to changed procedure in allocation of travel grants, the applications will be open in January 2023 and will be open all year long, instead of one fixed application deadline as before. 

It is also possible to apply for travel costs regarding courses or summer schools abroad. However, the general premise for the grant allocation is that applications due to courses or summer schools come secondary to applications due to conferences. In other words, academic participation in a conference (presentation, poster or other academic contribution) is a key element of prioritization for the grant allocation.

The amount of the grant is 100.000 ISK.

Applicants must attend to the annual course registration in March each year to be eligible for applying for the travel grant.
