Organising a conference or workshop
Leiden University scholars can apply to Leiden University Fund’s (LUF) Committee for Academic Expenditure (Commissie voor Wetenschappelijke Bestedingen, CWB) for a grant to organise conferences and workshops. The activity must have an academic objective and/or emphasise the social relevance of the applicant’s research field.
Application and selection
If you would like to apply for a grant to organise a conference, please read the CWB grant conditions – Organising a conference to check whether your conference or workshop is eligible for a CWB grant.
If you meet all the criteria, you can submit an application using the Application Form CWB – Organising a conference or workshop. Please read the information about applying to the CWB to organise a conference for more information about what you need to submit and the application procedure.
Applications will only be considered for activities that are due to take place after the date of the next meeting. Please see the CWB meeting overview for the meeting dates and submission deadlines.
If you have any questions, or if you would like to discuss your application, please feel free to contact Henk Snijders (Secretary for Allocation of Funds) by e-mail to CWB@luf.leidenuniv.nl or by telephone on +31 (0) 71 527 49 03 (Mon-Thu).
We must receive the expenses claim for your project no later than three months after the project is completed. Please submit your expenses claim using the form for CWB expenses – organising a conference. The expenses claim must include certain information. Please attach the following information to the form:
- Financial expenses claim (please use the declaration form)
- Descriptive report
- Photographs of the conference
Please see the criteria for the CWB grant final report to find out what you need include in your descriptive report. The expenses claim will provide the basis for the grant amount to be decided and paid, and it will help us to show alumni, donors and potential donors what their support has achieved. Your report and photographs will become the property of the LUF and may be used for publication purposes.
