NOVA finances PhD and Master’s courses (including single courses, course series and combined PhD and Master’s courses) as well as other projects with Nordic cooperation. It is required that there is a Nordic dimension and an added value of the course, that there is Nordic course planning and that the course is run for students from NOVA member institutions. The minimum number of students on a course is 12 NOVA students. Other students are also welcome. NOVA encourages cooperation with the Baltic Forestry, Veterinary and Agricultural University Network (BOVA). PhD courses within the following topics are desired: Nordic food, agriculture in the Arctic and bioinformatics. It is also possible to apply for funding within other course topics.

It is important to submit your application in the NOVA online application system. After you have submitted the application, your local NOVA coordinator will receive access to it for local evaluation. He/she may contact you for questions or clarifications. When your application has been approved by your home institution, the local coordinator will submit it to NOVA. Please see more detailed information on the application process here.
