Fieldwork and data collection abroad

Would you like to travel abroad to collect data for your degree project? You have the opportunity to apply for the Minor Field Studies (MFS) grant or the Crafoord Foundation travel grant.

Fieldwork connected to Agenda 2030

Minor Field Studies (MFS) gives you practical experience of fieldwork in a low or middle-income country and a grounding in working in a global context.

The fieldwork gives you the opportunity to collect data for a degree project at

  • Bachelor's
  • 60-credit Master’s or
  • 120-credit Master’s level

if it ties in with one or more of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

A great way to learn field methodology and run projects in an unfamiliar environment.
