Details about the funding
Insofar as this is possible, all journeys should be undertaken using the cheapest mode of public transport. If for special reasons you have to drive in your own car, you may receive a mileage allowance; this is currently set at DKK 1.90 per km.
You can also apply for funding towards the cost of accommodation (up to DKK 1000 per night). The grant does not award daily allowances towards food.
This grant only covers the applicant’s own travel expenses. If you wish to apply for funding to cover the travel costs of others, send an application to the Production Costs grant scheme and list the relevant costs as production costs.
When can I expect a reply?
You will receive a reply to your application approximately two months after the application deadline.
