Financial Support

Nordic and Baltic PhD students and Post-Docs can apply for financial support for hotel expenses.

Nordic and Baltic PhD students and Post-Docs can also apply for travel support:

  • up to 1000 SEK for those coming from Sweden
  • up to 1500 for those coming from other Scandinavian countries
  • up to 3000 SEK for those coming from Iceland and other countries


The school is primarily intended for PhD students and young postdocs from the Nordic and Baltic countries. Advanced masters students may also apply. Students and postdocs outside the Nordic and Baltic countries may also apply, although financial support is available for only Nordic and Baltic students and postdocs.

You apply to the Nordita winter school in two steps:

  1. Fill in the form in the menu to the left
  2. Show that you are eligible to the school either by stating in the application form a reference to a published paper that best represents your work, or ask your supervisor or other person to send a short recommendation letter to winterschool@nordita.org.

Note that all three steps must be completed by 15 December 2018.

Invited speakers should also fill in the form, but only the indicated sections.
