Financial support for research training events
The DoCS programme can provide financial support for research training events (guest lectures, intensive courses, summer schools, workshops, etc.) that are within the research themes of the programme and benefit its students.
The application time for the support is continuous. A free-form application should be submitted to the coordinator in good time before the start of the event. The application should include a description of the event as well as an approximation of the total costs of the event.
Financial support for the completion of your dissertation
The university provides a dissertation completion grant up to three months. More information about this can be found here.
DoCS can provide financial support for a dissertation completion retreat. This means reasonable travel and accommodation costs in a university's research station (or similar). Usual retreat stays are one or two weeks. More information about university's research stations can be found here.
If you would like to apply for this funding please send an informal, but detailed, application to docs-info (at) helsinki.fi. The application should include the total costs of the retreat and the amount you are applying from DoCS, as well as the current status of your thesis and intended travel time. The board of DoCS will make a decision based on your application within a month.
