There were a record number of applicants (15) for this year’s grants. Unfortunately, the available amount for each partner university has diminished as compared to previous years. Therefore we are only able to approve three grants of 15.000 SEK each.
We have decided to approve the following three applications.

Karolina Lapinaite: ICTs and public libraries – a comparison between Kenya (Kibera slum, Nairobi) and Lithuania
Santiago Mayor: Digital media and democratization. The case of Myanmar
Elias Rådelius: Amplifying and empowering local culture through community radio and social media – the case of Wired for Sound in Mozambique

Two interregional PhDs are now being announced at Malmö University and Roskilde University, under the over-arching headline Histories of Globalization, Communication and Development. One of the PhD positions, based at Malmö’s School of Arts and Communication, K3, and linked to the Ørecomm Centre for Communication and Glocal Change is specifically addressing the field of Communication for Development. Deadline for application is 1 October. See link to description and application form here.
Below is a description of the content and structure of the two PhDs and their interregional connections.
