Jury announces winners of GRAFT Travel Grant 2020

The jury committee selected two winners from numerous applications from over fifteen countries for this year’s GRAFT Travel Grant. We congratulate Sindhuri Nandhakumar and Franziska Martin with „Where is our trash?” and Katherine Ball with “Water-Energy-Food Nexus at Floating University Berlin” to their convincing proposals and wish them much joy and success in the realization within the coming months.

We released the open call for this year’s Travel Grant prior to the outbreak of Covid-19. In order to honor the efforts and time that went into the numerous applications, the jury decided to still award this year’s grant, and give the scholars the chance to adapt their projects in the most safe and feasible ways in times of the pandemic, especially in the light of current travel restrictions.

We would like to sincerely thank all applicants for their contributions of an extraordinarily high quality to this year’s call for projects! Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to learn more about the projects as they unfold.
