Project grants awarded in autumn 2022
The Leiden University Fund (LUF) Committee for Academic Expenditure (CWB) has an annual project grant round in March for teaching and research projects up to € 35,000. This year a second round was held in September.
The funds for the autumn round come from the LUF’s named funds and the project grant funds from the Praesidium Libertatis I Foundation. The project grants for academic talent are often an important springboard to applications to the Dutch Research Council (NWO) and other major grant-providing funds.
The CWB received 22 applications for a LUF grant in this autumn round. All applications were assessed on the following criteria: 1) the academic interest and innovative character, 2) the problem definition and methodology and 3) the applicant’s ambition and the quality of their CV. On the basis of the available funds, 10 applicants will be awarded a grant.
