You need to apply for 100% support from other primary sources (such as the Turku University Foundation, other foundations, graduate school) for all travel expenses before you are entitled to receive a travel grant from Lifespan. Please present the funding plan in the application form (“Funding from other sources”) to indicate which primary sources you have applied (or will apply) for funding. Those applicants who can show that they have applied (or are in the process of applying) the total travel budget from other sources are prioritized over those who show inactivity in applying grants. Lifespan makes decisions conditionally, and the Lifespan grant is paid only if the decisions of the primary sources are negative, or if the received sums are not enough to cover all the travel expenses.
