The State Education Development Agency (hereinafter – the Agency) organizes and implements a limited project submission call with the allocation of additional funding of the European Economic Area and Norway Grants (EEA/NO) 2014-2021 programme “Research and Education” activity “Scholarships” (Scholarships programme) for projects approved in 1st and 2nd call.
The competition is held so that the project implementers have the opportunity to supplement the projects with activities, giving priority to those involving students and university staff who are Ukrainian civilians and who had to leave Ukraine or who cannot return to Ukraine due to the armed conflict caused by the Russian Federation. However, this does not change the fact that it is possible to apply for activities involving students and staff from Latvia or other countries.
Students and staff can be involved in project activities (at least one person mentioned in clauses 1, 2 or 3 of the regulations must be involved) as a recipient of co-financing:
Recipients of co-financing of approved projects in the 1st and 2nd call of the scholarships activity until February 21, or within 20 working days from placing information on the website of the European Economic Area and the Norway Grants eeagrants.lv sends a completed amendment request form (Annex 1) to the agency’s e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org, in English language including justification of compliance of additional activities with the project goal and their impact on the indicators to be achieved in the project, providing a description of additional activities, including the involvement of Ukrainian students and staff, and the indicators to be achieved, as well as indicating the planned changes in the project contract and its annexes, adding the following attachments, which can be found in the section “Documents”:
