The Utrecht Network Young Researcher’s Grant is designed to promote and further enhance the Network’s support to students and staff as well as broaden mobility between the Network's institutions.

2015.08.12 | Jakob Nim

Within the framework of the Young Researchers Grant up to 10 scholarships of €1,000 each will be offered to students, who might not be eligible for other scholarship programs such as ERASMUS+ (e.g. length of stay is under 3 months).

The Utrecht Network Young Researchers Grant is for self-organised mobility at one of the Utrecht Network partner universities. You cannot apply for the grant if your mobility is not within a university part of the Utrecht Network.

Please check the members section for an overview of all member institutions.

The grant is limited to thesis research on masters or PhD level. Students are allowed to take courses as well. However priority will be given to ‘research-only’ PhD students.

Since the study/research period including the application is self-organized, students are expected to check possible research areas of the university they want to apply to and to find the supervisor by themselves. International Relations Office may offer help in finding a supervisor but it is considered that this task is part of a student's project and should be done by the student.

Prerequisites:

- Masters/PhD level
- Length of stay: 1 - 6 months (mobility is not restricted to semesters, but may also take place during the holidays)
- Students, who are eligible for an ERASMUS grant, cannot apply for this grant

You cannot apply for the grant if your mobility is not within the Utrecht Network. Please check the members section for an overview of all member institutions.
