MAKING RESEARCH INTERNATIONAL!

Grant

The Scientific Association for Entrepreneurship Education awards an annual travel grant with the aim of promoting Finnish entrepreneurship education research and strengthening international researcher networking. The travel grant may be awarded to cover travel expenses and/or participation fees related to an international entrepreneurship/entrepreneurship education conference.
The grant is particularly intended to support doctoral students, researchers in the early stage of their post doc career, and research groups as they continue and internationalise their research work. In order to be eligible for the grant, the recipient must give a presentation at the conference (at least a poster presentation). A recipient of the travel grant also commits to improving the Scientific Association for Entrepreneurship Education’s visibility at the conference for which the grant has been awarded. The grant cannot be awarded retroactively.

Applicants do not have to be a member of the association.

For grant applicants

Apuraha on haettavissa 1.12.2021- 31.1.2022.  Hakemuksessa tulee ilmetä selkeät perustelut matka-apurahan hakemiselle ja matkan tarkoitukselle:

1. Which conference is involved and why is it important for the applicant to participate in this particular conference?
2. How does the conference promote the applicant's research and researcher career?
3. What kind of presentation will the applicant be giving at the conference?
4. A cost estimate of the total expenses and a plan for use of the travel grant as well as a report concerning other grant applications related to the trip in question.
5. Information on the number of international entrepreneurship/entrepreneurship education conferences the applicant has attended over the past five years
6. Consent to act as an ambassador of the Scientific Association for Entrepreneurship Education at the conference and write a blog-style travel report after the conference, which will be published on the association’s website. An ambassador uses the association's logo in their conference presentation.

Hakuprosessissa huomioidaan, että hakijana on tohtorikoulutettava tai post doc uran alkuvaiheessa oleva tutkija tai tutkimusryhmä. Matka-avustuksen tarve tulee olla riittävällä tavalla perusteltu ja avustusta haetaan soveltuvaan ulkomaiseen konferenssiin. Tämän lisäksi matka-apurahan käyttösuunnitelma tulee olla kustannusarvioineen realistinen ja hakija ei ole hakenut/saanut muita apurahoja ko. konferenssin kustannusten kattamiseen. Etusijalla ovat hakijat, joilla ei ole ollut mahdollisuutta osallistua useaan kansainväliseen konferenssiin viimeisten viiden vuoden aikana. YKTS:n hallituksen jäsenet ja varajäsenet eivät ole hakukelpoisia hallituskautensa aikana.
