You are very welcome to the Union House Villan to try the hats before you file your request, please observe that you can only file a request for one size.

Kempe fonden


  18-09-2018

Möjligheten finns nu för doktorander att söka medel från Kempefonden igen och jag hoppas du kan hjälpa mig med att sprida information hos er om denna möjlighet?

För att kunna söka krävs att doktoranden är medlem i någon av studentkårerna vid Umeå universitet samt bosatt i Västernorrlands-, Västerbottens- och Norrbottens län.

Ansökningar sker helt digital, vilket också gör att vi kan korta ned beslutstiden något. Sista ansökningsdag är måndagen 8 oktober 23.59.

Instruktioner, kontaktuppgifter till mig och ansökningsformulär finner doktoranderna på www.kempefonden.se och information finns naturligtvis på såväl svenska som engelska.
