Applications are carefully processed and confidentially where relevant.
During the decision procedure, applications are assessed based on the formal eligibility criteria and based on substantive assessment criteria. The assessment criteria, amongst others, take into account:
- To what extent the application contributes to the core aims of the Erasmus Trustfonds and/or the named funds
- The expected quality of the proposed activities
- The expected societal impact of the proposed activities
- To what extent the application involves Erasmus University Rotterdam
- The quality of the application
- Whether the activities can proceed without the support of the Erasmus Trustfonds.
Grants are awarded based on priority of the application and available budget.
Applications are assessed by the Erasmus Trustfonds staff and the board. We aim to do so within six weeks. However, in exceptional cases, it might take longer before a decision is made.
During the decision procedure, we might contact you for further information.
After a decision has been made
After we have reviewed the application, a notification of the decision will be sent to you by e-mail.
If support is granted, the grant letter states the amount granted and the requirements/conditions under which the grant is made. We might, for example, require a report of the activity.
In the grant letter you are requested to submit a financial and substantive account. Please find a template for this report here.
