Doctoral student grants are intended for doctoral students who apply under their own names.
What is funded
The grant from the IRF may fund up to 100% of the total eligible project cost. Approved expenses include salaries for students as well as travel costs for up to 300,000 ISK per grant year. All other costs in relation to the project must be covered by the supervisor/institution. It is possible to apply for funding of salaries of doctoral students in IRF project grants and IRF grants of excellence, however the same student cannot receive funding for more than 12 man-months per year.
Doctoral student grants are provided for up to 36 months. The maximum grant amount is ISK 16 million for a 36-month project, ISK 10.6 million for a 24-month project, and ISK 5.3 million for a 12-month project.
The doctoral degree must be awarded by an Icelandic university, but a joint degree with a foreign University is also allowed. Applicants for doctoral student grants must have been admitted to doctoral studies at an Icelandic university and an attestation to that effect shall accompany the application.
