Travel Grant

Travel grants facilitate knowledge dispatching and exchange within the cancer research field.


Applications for travel grants can be submitted all year round, no later than two months before the start of a scheduled trip. Forms can be downloaded on this page (see below after the article).

The trip must be related to cancer research and requires active attending. Destinations and departure/return dates shall be obligatory indicated. The application form and appendices are to be sent in one pdf-file via e-mail to the AG-Fond’s secretariat; additional or missing information such as an approval for a poster presentation will be required from the foundation thereafter.

Good to have in mind:

  • The Travel Grant is not fit for education or post doc travels.
  • The foundation approved at most one travel grant application issued by the same applicant per calendar year.
  • The reason for submitting an application has to be clearly related to cancer research.
  • The applicant has an undergraduate degree and is registered as doctoral student.
  • The applicant will attend the event with an active attendance such as the presentation of a poster.
  • The application will be submitted no later than two months before the scheduled trip.​ The approval for presentation can be sent afterwards if the application for allowance is granted.
  • The acceptance for a poster presentation is required in order to get a travel grant. The grant will only be paid after the acceptance is sent via email to the secretariat.
  • A travel report has to be sent no later than one month after return.

The applicant will take contact with the secretariat Öppnas i nytt fönster. to get more guidance about this errand. 


The travel report will be sent via email to the foundation at the latest one month after return from the trip. The given registration number (RB XX-XX) has to be indicated in the document.

The purpose of the report is to give the Board of the Foundation a basis for its activities' report.

The report shall be brief and presented like a clinic internal travelogue in which the traveller will summarise on the basis of personal experience and knowledge, the benefits given by the trip.

The report should be disseminated within the clinic and possibly to others who may have an interest in it. As the Board of the Foundation has no intention to publish the report, it can be formulated in a more informal way.

The Board of the Foundation is however not opposed to the publication of the travel reports.
