Applied welfare research – funding of PhD studies

Forte will open a call for applications by the beginning of March 2018, for two collaborating academic institutions to host PhD studies. The PhD positions are designed for social workers who want to combine work with part-time studies. This call is a part of the National Research Programme on Applied Welfare. Once the academic institutions are appointed in autumn 2018, they in turn will be able to initiate the admission process to the PhD programme. Studies are planned to start in autumn 2019.
