Snouck Hurgronje Grant

The Snouck Hurgronje Grant is an annual grant for interfaculty research or teaching projects.

Issues in today’s society rarely fall within the scope of a single discipline or specialism. This makes it extremely important for researchers to look beyond the boundaries of their own field when they are seeking solutions. The Snouck Hurgronje Grant for interfaculty and socially relevant projects was established to encourage this. Each year, the Committee for Academic Expenditure (CWB) awards a sum of between €100,000 and €150,000 for the research project that best meets the criteria.

A shortlist of three projects will be selected from the entries that are received. The applicants for these projects will be invited to present their proposal to the CWB in the month of October. The recipient of the grant will be decided upon afterwards.

Final report

You must submit a final report for your project within three months of the project’s completion. Please use the Snouck Hurgronje Grant final report form for this. The final report should contain a number of elements, which can be attached to the form: 

  • a list of expenses (please use the expense form)
  • a descriptive report 
  • photos of the project.

See the Criteria for the Snouck Hurgronje Grant final report to find out what you need to include in your descriptive report. The final report will determine the exact sum that is disbursed and will allow the LUF to show donors and potential donors what their support has achieved. The report and photos will become the property of the LUF and may be used for publication purposes.
