QuSpin Mobility Grant 

QuSpin Mobility Grant 

Encouraging our PhD students to seek international research experience, broaden their cultural outlook and extend their network.

In 2022 we established the QuSpin Mobility Grant which our PhD students can apply for in connection with research stays abroad if their application provides a clear explanation on how the research stay will benefit their current project and QuSpin.

The purpose of this grant is to learn and transfer research relevant to the project and QuSpin as a whole. We emphasize that these research stays should create stronger professional relationships between the host, the PhD student and QuSpin, and that it should result in a joint publication.

The grant will typically cover travel and accommodation costs. Candidates can apply for financial support for up to three months for a research stay. After the completion of the research term the applicant is required to present findings and experiences during the annual research conference. 

In addition, a one page report and 2-3 photos will be required and published on the QuSpin web page.



The application must include the following:

  • Project plan
  • An explanation of why and how the visit will benefit your research project and QuSpin research
  • An invitation from the host institution
  • Budget plan

We offer the following grants of NOK 21 000 (including travel) per month, up to three months in total.  


NB: The link to the form is not working for the time being. Please send the application directly to: karen-elisabeth.sodahl@ntnu.no

Application deadline March 1st and September 1st.
