Lustrum and Snouck Hurgronje Grant 2020

The first annual Snouck Hurgronje Grant for interfaculty research or teaching projects was awarded in 2019. This year, the LUF has decided to combine the application procedure for this grant with the procedure for the LUF Lustrum Grant, which is also intended for interfaculty and socially relevant projects.

Snouck Hurgronje Grant

Social issues rarely fall within the boundaries of a single discipline or specialism. In the search for solutions, it is essential that scientists look beyond the borders of their own field. To stimulate this, the Snouck Hurgronje Grant has been set up to support interfaculty and socially relevant projects. Every year the Committee for Academic Expenditure (CWB) awards €150,000 to the research team with the best project proposal. In 2019 this grant was awarded to the Past-at-Play lab

LUF Lustrum Grant

2020 is a LUF lustrum year. We will be celebrating this milestone by, among other things, awarding a special Lustrum Grant for interfaculty research or teaching projects that are relevant to society. A Lustrum Grant worth €125,000 has already been awarded to the LUMC to carry out research into the coronavirus; €150,000 is still available. The LUF Lustrum Grant and the Snouck Hurgronje Grant are open for applications at the same time. The same conditions apply. 


The timeline for both grants is as follows:

  • Applications can be submitted between Monday 1 June and Monday 6 July 2020.
  • The shortlist will be made during the CWB meeting on 21 September 2020.
  • The applicants of the four best-evaluated projects will be invited to give a presentation at the CWB meeting of 12 October 2020.
  • In principle, one Snouck Hurgronje Grant amounting to a maximum of €150,000 and one Lustrum Grant amounting to a maximum of €150,000 will be awarded. 

Would you like your research or teaching project to be considered for one of these grants? Then submit your application before Monday 6 July 2020. More information about all the criteria is available on this page. Questions? Get in touch via CWB@LUF.leidenuniv.nl or 071 513 05 03.
