LUF Praesidium Libertatis Grant

The Praesidium Libertatis Grant is awarded to a young talented researcher, who is able to (further) develop innovative and original research ideas. The grant is also meant to be a first step towards larger grants. The grant amounts to € 75,000, made available by the Praesidium Libertatis I Foundation, part of LUF. Applications will be assessed by the LUF Committee for Academic Expenditure (CWB). 

The application procedure for 2022 has been completed. The next round is in the summer of 2024. The conditions and application procedure will be similar to those of 2022 (see the tile on the right side of this page (or below on your phone) for the conditions and application procedure).

Per faculty two applications may be submitted, so there is a pre-selection. Each faculty has a contact person, who coordinates this process:

Archaeology: Research support
Governance and Global Affairs: Anne Christine de Haan
Humanities: Marcel Belderbos
Law: Karin van Heijningen
Medicine/LUMC: Pieter de Koning
Science: Monique Leemkuil
Social and Behavioural Sciences: Hester Bergsma

If you have any questions or would like to discuss your application, please contact Klaartje Sluijs (Secretary) at CWB@LUF.leidenuniv.nl (available Mon-Thu).
