Adjusted LUF subsidy conditions due to the corona virus
The LUF has taken the following measures with regard to its subsidy policy as a result of the corona crisis.
1. Students and researchers who return home early from a stay abroad, for which a LUF subsidy has been granted, can still claim their grant after submitting the customary final report.
2. If a trip or activity is delayed, you will not lose your grant. Provided that a new date is set within three months and the trip or activity will start or take place in 2021. If you cannot fulfil this condition, the grant will be cancelled. A new application can be submitted at any time.
3. From 20 March 2020, new grant applications will only be considered if the study trip, conference visit or other activity takes place after 1 September 2020.
Applications for online activities that take place before 1 September 2020 will be considered as eligible. Subsidies are granted with the provision that restrictive government measures are lifted - in the case of a trip, the measures of the country of destination are taken into account as well - and the restrictive measures taken by the university are also lift-ed.
4. As a courtesy, the LUF will contribute pro rata to any cancellation costs for activities for which the LUF has honoured a grant before 12 March 2020.
Please do not hesitate to contact us. You can send your email to the designated committee: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org. LUF wishes everyone strength and wisdom in these turbulent times.
