Travel grants

NSfK provides financial support for conference related travel and study trips abroad. Support is available only for researchers in the field of criminology, based in the Nordic countries. The activities which we support via our travel grants can include:

– participation in conferences in a foreign country
– participation in academic courses in a foreign university (available only for PhD students)
