In honor of Professor Emeritus Jan Pettersson, who passed away in August 2017, a scholarship fund has been established. The travel stipends are intended for PhD students at SLU with projects related to insects. Apply no later than 28 February 2024.

Foremost, the scholarships are awarded to allow for an international study trip, but also travel to attend an international conference or course may get support. Grants are not given for salary. The maximum amount that can be applied for is 10 000 SEK.

The application shall contain a brief description of your research project, the purpose of the trip, the location and the local contact person for the study trip (alternatively the title of the conference or course), a cost estimate and your contact details.
