The lockdown measures that have been necessary during the Covid-19 pandemic are having a disproportionately negative impact on the life-work dynamics of PhD researchers with caring responsibilities. 
In an effort to support PhD students who are also carers and who may be facing disproportional challenges during these times, the MAPS Faculty has opened a call for applications to the MAPS Caring Fund 2021. We aim to provide some financial assistance to PhD students with caring responsibilities to help them achieve a better balance between doing their research and attending their additional caring responsibilities during the pandemic. 
To apply for this financial assistance, please read carefully the pdf guidelines below and submit your application online by 25 Feb 2021.  The online form can be found in this link: http://bit.ly/PhDMAPScaringFund2021
