Going to a conference and can’t find travel funds? Interested in museum collections but can’t afford to get to the incredible resources for your research? Doing cool fieldwork but hampered by the expense? Then we have a possible answer: The Christoffer Schander Memorial Fund is giving 3 stipends of 10 thousand crowns to worthy recipients in spring 2017.

The main focus of the fund lies in encouraging scientific cooperation in marine biology by providing financial support for fieldwork (collecting of material for taxonomic and/or biodiversity work) and taxonomic studies in museum collections.

Visiting marine taxonomists and systematists can apply for funding for travel and accommodation in connection to short term visits at the Marine Biological Station in Espegrend and at the University Museum of Bergen Norway. Likewise, Master and PhD students in marine biology at University of Bergen can apply for support for short-term projects in cooperation with other institutions or support for conference participation where they will present their own results. Projects including fieldwork or work in scientific collections will be prioritized.

Selection will be done by the five member funding board of national and international scientists and family members.

Please include a letter of intent, describing the purpose of your stay in Bergen or trip to other institutions, and a short CV. Students should include a letter of support from their supervisor. Applications will be evaluated shortly after the submission deadline and successful candidates will be informed in early June.

Deadline is May 31, 2017. Please send the complete application form as a single attachment to Karin.Pittman@uib.no.
