Webinar no 1 - carry out your degree project abroad

Time Tuesday 6 October, 2020 at 12:15 - 13:00
Place Zoom

During the webinar, political science student Helin Bäckman Kartal will talk about her field study in South Africa and the International Office will talk about the scholarship for Minor Field Studies.

Minor Field Studies is a scholarship that makes it possible for final-year students at bachelor's or master's level to carry out your degree project abroad.

With the scholarship, you can travel to a low- or middle-income country to collect material for your thesis or degree project. The field study must last for a minimum of 8 consecutive weeks and a maximum of 26 weeks and the scholarship is SEK 27,000. The last day to apply is 15 November.

A link will be sent out by email prior to the event.

Whether Umeå University will be able to grant scholarships for field studies depends on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' travel recommendations.

We encourage anyone interested in Minor Field Studies to submit your application. We will make preliminary assessments of the applications in order to make our decisions, if the travel recommendations should change.
