Are you a PhD student at the University of Groningen? Do you need to carry out fieldwork? Or are you organising an (online) workshop or training? To spur young researchers to work on societal challenges, Sustainable Society offers a grant for University of Groningen PhD candidates. This grant enables PhD candidates to broaden their horizon and give their research output an extra push.
PhD students from the University of Groningen can apply for the Sustainable Society PhD Grant. This grant is intended to enable PhD candidates to gain relevant experience during their doctoral programme, to broaden their network and to further promote their research. The aim is to enable them to acquire additional experience on top of their regular activities.
The grant proposals will be evaluated by a selection committee, consisting of:
The committee members will assess the applications based on the predefined criteria (see below).
We award 8 grants of 2000 euros. The grants will be awarded during the Grant Ceremony on 24 November 2022.
When the selection committee has decided on the 8 winners, the PhD candidates are asked (and expected) to prepare a pitch to present their research during the Grant Ceremony. During this ceremony, not only will the grants be handed over, but on top of that, the PhD candidate with the best and most persuasive pitch will also receive a bonus prize, to be spend within one year: the possibility to visualize his/her research by a professional designer. This visualization is worth 1000 euros and will serve the goal of increasing and stimulating the visibility and impact of PhD research.
