Mobility Grant 2020, Invitation extended until January 2021

The VREF invites PhD students and advanced master students from Sub-Saharan African (SSA) universities to apply for a Mobility Grant (SMG) study visit to another SSA university. The invitation is now open until January 31st, 2021.

During 2020, the VREF Secretariat will handle applications at three occasions with the following closing dates: May 15, August 15 and October 31. The applicant will be informed of the VREF decision within two weeks after each closing date.

The visit to another SSA university will be supported up to SEK 25 000.

Due to difficulties causedby the pandemy, it has been decided to extend the invitation until January 31, 2021. The possibility to pay a study visit to an other site located in the same country is also accepted.

VREF will respect existing rules and regulations regarding travel restrictions (particularly regarding international travel) due to the current COVID19 pandemic.

Based on these restrictions, VREF will reserve its right to approve travel applications during the pandemic. In 2020, and with reference to current international travel restrictions, VREF is willing to waive the requirement that mobility grants will only be awarded for visits to universities in countries outside the country in which the applicant is based.

VREF will thus consider applications for mobility grants to visit other universities *within the same country* in which the applicant is based.
