Professional Development Support Funds
GLOMAR makes available funds to support specific categories of graduate student professional development.
Funding can be granted under different funding categories:
(1) Conference participation
In this category, funding can be granted for conference fees, travel costs, accomodation and daily allowance.
(2) Training not available at GLOMAR
such as summer schools, courses or workshops at other institutions
(3) Research stay / internship at another institution
In this category, funding can be granted for travel costs, accomodation and daily allowance.
(4) Family support
includes financial and organisational support for child care and the opportunity to extend the PhD period for 6 months for every child under the age of 2.
The Department of Geosciences holds a room that can be used for children of staff during conferences, talks or similar (see Child care).
(5) Language training
GLOMAR may grant funding for language training to support PhD students in improving their language skills.
How to apply for funding
To apply for funding in the categories 1-4, please use the GLOMAR proposal form. The Proposal Preparation Intstructions will help you to fill in the form. Both can be found on the documents page. To apply for funding in the categories 5 or 6 an informal application will be accepted.
Applications should be sent to the scientific coordinator.
Proposals are reviewed by a team that comprises the scientific coordinator (formalities), two anonymous reviewers (scientific content) and the graduate dean (final decision).
Who is eligible for funding?
All GLOMAR PhD students who fulfill the requirements of the GLOMAR curriculum and have submitted reports about their past activities funded by GLOMAR (see Reporting) are eligible for funding. Please note that a 6 months funding freeze will be imposed if the requirements are not met.
Students who received funding in the categories 1-3 are expected to write a report about their activity funded by GLOMAR. The report should include a photograph and must be submitted to the scientific coordinator no later than 2 weeks after the activity ended.
