FIG Foundation Academic Research Grants for Researchers from Developing Countries
FIG Foundation Academic Research Grants for Researchers from Developing CountriesAbout the Award:
Grants will be awarded to a focussed research project. The grant holder is expected to conduct the bulk of the research themselves (it is not a research manager’s grant), but at the same time the development of highly qualified personnel (HQP) should be a major component of the project.
Postgraduate students should be full time students, and this grant may financial support for their degree studies. However, the principal investigator should be intimately involved in the work.
There are two rounds to the competition. In the first round, applicants will provide the documents listed below.
Second round applicants will provide a detailed application using the designated template, in a format similar to the Canadian Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) or Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) requirements.Research
