International Mobility

AUFF wishes to support inbound and outbound mobility at Aarhus University. Partly by supporting visits at AU from foreign researchers and by supporting AU researchers' stay at foreign universities. The purpose of the grant scheme is to develop AU researchers both professionally and personally by providing an opportunity for international experience by, among other things, building and strengthening professional networks. Permanent researchers (associate professors / senior researchers or professors) at Aarhus University can apply for both instruments. Applications must include a letter of support from the Head of Department.

Visiting Researcher Stipends: Consecutive visits of 1 - 3 months are eligible. Grants can cover the visitor's reasonable living expenses in the form of a stipend plus travel expenses or salary and travel expenses. The stipend amounts to DKK 15,000 per month up to 3 months whereby the scholarship is tax-free. The application must be made by the host at AU.

Sabbatical Stipends: Applications should cover stays of 3-9 months. In some situations, it can be possible to split the stay over several periods. Up to DKK 200,000 can be applied for. The funds can co-finance expenses for travel and accommodation. Including travel expenses, rent, free purchases from AU, travel expenses for accompanying family and other documented extra expenses in connection with the stay abroad.
