October ‘43 Travel Grant

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

Deadline: November 1, 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.

Applications
Applicants are requested to describe their project on one page and submit a budget. The 2020 grant will focus on travels with the purpose of collecting information for a project, or doing a project, on minimum a university master’s level.

The October ’43 Travel Grant does not cover expenses for studying abroad or school trips abroad.

The project has to be completed by October 31, 2021.

In case the project is delayed due to current corona-situation, a postponement is possible

Submit your application here (a form will open in a new window. The form is in Danish but applications can be submitted in English).

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.
