SASNET Travel Grant for Journalism Students

The application deadline for 2024 has passed.

Travel grant for students at the School of Journalism (‘Journalistutbildningen’) at Lund University.

Eligibility criteria

The grant is intended to allow students to conduct fieldwork in South Asia during the Bachelor course in journalism at the Department of Communication and Media, Lund University. Applicants are expected to describe the proposed project and how they plan to use the grant in accordance with the instructions that are specified below.

The fieldwork must take place in India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Maldives, Nepal, or Bhutan. Funding will not be granted for fieldwork in a country or region that is included in the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ list of places that are not deemed safe to visit.  

Two students who intend to collaborate during the project and, thus, want to travel together, might share the grant equally. In that case, state this in the application.
