The AMU Student Grant Competition 2021

 

As of 15 February 2021, the Dean of FAMU is announcing the second round of the FAMU Student Grant Competition (SGS) for the distribution and use of targeted support provided by the Ministry of Education for specific university research in 2021, the rules of which are determined by Rector's Decree No. 9/2016 and related amendments, with the deadline for submitting the electronic version of the application by 8 March 2021 (by 12:00).

The student grant competition aims to support master's and doctoral students in research activities related to, for example, the preparation of their diploma or dissertation thesis and the development of their academic skills in general.

Up to CZK 503,000 can be distributed in the second round.


Conditions of the Student Grant Competition:

For the year 2021 the Competition is only open for one-year projects implemented between 1 January 2021 and 31 December 2021. The funds can usually be drawn only from March of the year, i.e., after the allocation of the subsidy from the Ministry of Education to the Faculty’s budget.

  • The maximum amount available for the support of one project is CZK 250,000.
     
  • Applicants are either FAMU’s academic personnel (typically for students’ master research projects) or doctoral students of FAMU. Each applicant may submit only one SGS application within the entire school.
     
  • Other members of the project teams may be the students of doctoral or master’s programmes of FAMU or FAMU’s research and development personnel. Bachelor’s students may not be involved in project implementation.
     
  • Applicants shall submit grant applications using the required form sent electronically to the Faculty’s grant department (sgs@famu.cz); at the same time, it is necessary to submit a printed version with implementers’ signatures to Silvie Demartini. The form in the .zfo form can be completed using the Software602 Form Filler application (available for download here), or it is possible to use a web form here.
     
  • The project result should ideally be an output that can be included in the Register of Information on Results (“RIVP) under the current Methodology for the Evaluation of Research Organisations’ Results. Project outputs may be in the form of a scientific article, workshop, etc.
     
  • As part of the project, it is possible to apply for funds for personal costs, grants for the students involved, travel expenses, acquisition of both tangible and intangible assets, services, overhead costs, etc.
     
  • Funds for the cost of edition can only be applied as part of project budgets if the applicant documents the stage of progress of a manuscript (an electronic version of the text can be inserted in the application form). It is permitted to apply for funds for the implementation of a project whose output will be the manuscript of a book only. If this is the case, it is possible to apply for the funding of the cost of edition in the subsequent edition of the competition or, as the case may be, after the approval of the manuscript by the NAMU Edition Committee from the publishing house’s internal funds.

We strongly recommend that you consult the project application on an ongoing basis with the Vice-Dean for Science and Research, Helena Bendová, helena.bendova@famu.cz, in terms of content and methodology, and with the methodologist for science and research, Silvia Demartini silvie.demartini@famu.cz, regarding the budget part of the project.

Applications with formal deficiencies will not be included in the competition.
