October ‘43 Travel Grant

The Humanity in Action Denmark’s October ‘43 Travel Grant will open for applications in 2020.

The Travel Grant is dedicated to young students and professionals who work with issues regarding refugees and/or the protection of minorities in either the academic, social, political or practical field. The travel grant applies to projects on Danish conditions or Danish engagements abroad.

The travel grant is established in commemoration of the solidarity of Danish civil society in its rescue of its Jewish countrymen and -women in October 1943.

The travel grant is made possible by funds raised at an art auction, exhibited in Politikens Forhal in September/October 2018, as a collaboration between Humanity in Action and Politiken for the 75th Anniversary of October 1943. The travel grant will be distributed according to the board’s decision in either one portion a year for the amount of DKK 30.000 or divided in two smaller portions.
