Is it possible to also apply for grants to support teaching?
One of my referrers has not received an email invitation to leave a referral in your system. How do we proceed?
Ask them to check their email’s junk mail filter. If the message cannot be found, they can also send a scanned copy of the referral to [email protected]
Do the required referrals also have to arrive by the end of the application period, or can they be sent in separately afterwards?
The referral has one week from the end of the application period to send in the referral.
Can the thesis supervisor send a referral related to my grant application directly to KAUTE Foundation?
Yes – preferably so, that you add their contact information (email) in the section where it is requested. The program will send a referral request and web link to the referrer. The referrer has one week to send in the referral. If this is not doable, the referrer can also send a scanned PDF file to [email protected]
Does a project description refer to a general description of the research subject, while the project plan covers the schedule and goals for the grant period being applied for?
Research plans are often purely academic descriptions of the project’s content, with no insight regarding potential wider-ranging benefits.
Should the plan and schedule cover the entire remaining research period and scope (for example, the next four years for a doctoral thesis) or only the next year’s work that the funding is applied for?
Research work / research plan = academic research plan or its summary for the entire research project.
Project description = a description of the work to be undertaken using grant funding.
The main thing is to provide motivation for the project’s benefits and relevance, in other words why funding should be awarded for the purpose you are applying for.
Will you accept the application in Finnish and appendices in English, or applications that are completely in English?
Applications and/or appendices in English are fine.
Do the special funds also award working grants (12 months)?
Funds decide on grant recipients and grant sizes. Applicants do not need to take this into account – the Foundation will forward applications to the most suitable funds.
Are special fund grants applied for using the same forms as the general grants? Where should I mention a special fund in the form?
Applicants do not need to take this into account – the Foundation will forward applications to the most suitable funds.
