In honour of the University’s 385th anniversary, a new kind of grant is being introduced for UvA PhD candidates to enable them to gain international experience.
The greatest gift for any birthday is an investment in the future. PhD students are vital for the future of research. With that in mind, the UvA is celebrating its anniversary with the launch of a new type of grant that will enable UvA PhD candidates to acquire international experience.

The grants will be awarded by the Doctorate Board. The winners will be announced during the Dies Natalis 2018 (the University’s birthday and the end of its anniversary year) and Dies Natalis 2019 (for the second round).
The deadline for the first round is 1 April 2017. The grant is worth up to €3,000.
