This project started in summer 2008, and so far over 450 students and researchers have got scholarships to study and work in one of the partner universities. Some of the grants will be reserved for Russians and academics from non-partner universities, Russian professionals and public administration personnel outside the academic sphere, teachers in regional educational systems and the indigenous peoples of the Russian Federation.

In the previous application rounds some grantees have been from the UArctic member institutions, and hopefully also this time there will be successful applicants in Target Group 2 and 3 of the project to any of the nine European universities.

The Call for Applications is open until 14 April 2010, 14:00 Finnish time (GMT +2) at the latest.

Please remember that the call is conditional to results of the European Commission Call for Proposals EACEA/29/09 which is expected earliest in late June 2010.
