The Humanity in Action Denmark’s October ‘43 Travel Grant is now open for applications.
Application deadline is November 1, 2020.
The Travel Grant is dedicated to young students and professionals who work with issues regarding refugees and/or the protection of minorities in either the academic, social, political or practical field. The travel grant applies to projects on Danish conditions or Danish engagements abroad.
The travel grant is established in commemoration of the solidarity of Danish civil society in its rescue of its Jewish population in October 1943. It is made possible by funds raised at an art auction, exhibited in Politikens Forhal in September/October 2018, as a collaboration between Humanity in Action and Politiken for the 75th Anniversary of October 1943.
The 2019 Travel Grant was awarded on October 7, 2019, to Annika Isfeld with a project on the Faroe Islands. Learn more about Annika Isfeld below.
