Awards and grants

For PhD students, BUP has an annual PhD Award in two categories, Social Sciences and Humanities, and Natural Sciences and Engineering. The winners are newly graduated doctors from the BUP member universities. The thesis has to fulfil the criteria of inter/multidisciplinarity, innovation and sustainable development. All research fields are welcome, but a focus on the Baltic Sea Region is an extra advantage. The candidates are nominated by their supervisors, read more here.
