Researchers who have recently graduated and obtained their doctoral degree are an important resource for future research and shape the creative research base, contributing to developments of ideas and innovations. To support PhD students and researchers at the beginning of their careers, BalticWaters started the scholarship program contributing with funds for equipment and travels necessary for carrying out scientific studies. PhD students can apply for up to SEK 100,000 and recently graduated researchers up to SEK 200,000. The scholarship is granted to research that contributes to build knowledge about measures that can lead to reduced eutrophication, functioning ecosystems, and a better management of our inland sea. Researchers within natural sciences and technology and social sciences are welcome to apply.

This year’s call opens on 20 September and closes on 20 December.
