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
- 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.
Data collection for degree projects and Bachelor’s/Master’s theses
If you need to collect data abroad in connection with your degree project or Bachelor’s/Master’s thesis, you can apply for a grant towards travel and expenses from the Crafoord Foundation.
A great way to learn field methodology and run projects in an unfamiliar environment.
