FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

How can I use the funds provided by the Martina Roeselová Memorial Fellowship?

The funding is intended to enable you to combine a scientific career with quality childcare. It is therefore primarily intended to cover childcare services, such as pre-school education, a stay in a play area or private childcare for times when you need to be at your workplace, studying or perhaps going to a conference or field trip with your child. (Read how the fellowship helped Katerina Sam from the Biology Center of the CAS.)
