Supervisors of successful applicants will be contacted to confirm that they are prepared to do this before any money is handed over. Supervisors should also indicate that they are aware of point 9 above.
Furthermore, FIG Foundation grants do not pay University overhead or administration assistant costs. Successful applicants will have to seek an exemption if their institution requires a portion of research grants for overhead costs.
