Promoting gender equality and equal opportunities and combating discrimination at Lund University
The management group for gender equality and equal opportunities extends an annual invitation to employees and students at Lund University to apply for funding for initiatives aimed at moving gender equality and equal opportunities issues forward and combating discrimination at Lund University.
The management group for gender equality and equal opportunities will allocate a maximum of SEK 1 million. Usually, a sum up to SEK 50 000 to 100 000 is allocated for each application.
The management group particularly welcomes applications in line with Lund University’s mission on gender mainstreaming. The management group also encourages applications with an intersectional perspective, which are focused on initiatives and reviews that combine several different areas within equal opportunities, if possible across several faculties. Applications concerning initiatives that contribute to the University’s systematic prevention work against discrimination (SFAD) are welcomed.
Decisions on the allocation of funding will be taken by the Vice-Chancellor in April 2019, following preparation by a working group from the management group. The deadline for applications is 7 February 2019. The call for applications takes place every year in November. Questions about applications can be addressed to the management group via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
