Combat Slavery in Disasters Scholarship

The Combat Slavery in Disasters Scholarship (CSDS) offers research support to individuals that contribute to the international field of knowledge in the relation to the intersection of human trafficking and disaster management.
This initiative aims to encourage and stimulate research into Human Trafficking in Disasters practices, policies, and systems.

Freedom in Disasters offers research scholarships that cover up to US $540 for individuals.  At any given time, an estimated 40.3 million people worldwide are trapped in modern slavery, which equates to 5.4 victims for every 1,000 people in the world. FiD wants to symbolically recognise this injustice by aligning the scholarship amount to the number of victims.

Scholarships are based on eligibility, limited to available funds, and processed in the order in which the applications are received. Scholarships are non-transferable and can be used only for Human Trafficking in Disasters research expenses. In collaboration with our academic partners aim to award up to five scholarships per person in any 12-month period.

Our research scholarship funds are available to cover some or all of the following:

  • Stakeholder engagement expenses
  • Transportation expenses
  • Lodging expenses
  • Conference, workshop or seminar costs

The awardee will be reimbursed for some or all of the above costs up to US$ 540.  Awardees must cover all other expenses on their own, may only use the funds to cover approved amounts as mentioned above, and are encouraged to use the least costly mode of transportation.

  1. Advancing Human Trafficking in Disasters body of knowledge
