In honour of the University’s 385th anniversary, the UvA385 grants were introduced for UvA PhD candidates last year to enable them to gain international experience. The first application round took place in 2017 and the second round began on 8 January 2018.
The UvA385 grants are intended to enable PhD candidates to acquire additional international experience during their doctoral programme on top of their regular opportunities. The grants can be used for various purposes. This is subject to the condition that the chosen activity brings added value to the PhD candidate’s research and that this activity is not a condition for completing the doctoral programme.
The UvA385 grants are awarded by the Doctorate Board. The selected grant recipients will be announced in June 2018.
Applications for UvA385 grants may be submitted until 2 April 2018. The maximum grant amount is €3,000.
