The Utrecht Network Young Researchers Grant

Can be applied for by PhD students - application deadline is 25 January

The Utrecht Network Young Researchers 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.

Within the framework of the Young Researchers Grant up to 20 scholarships of €1,000 each will be offered to students, who might not be eligible for other scholarship programmes such as Erasmus+ (e.g. length of stay is under 2 months).

The Utrecht Network Young Researchers Grant is for self-organised mobilities at one of the Utrecht Network partner universities.

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.
