FAQ

Where can I find the application deadlines?

Please check this page for all the upcoming deadlines.

Can I save my application and complete it later?

Yes, you can. When you have filled out all obliged fields and click ‘next’, the form will automatically save your application. Please do note that all required fields have to be filled out. You can then leave the form and return to it lateron.

In which language do I have to fill in the application form?

Grant applications must be written in Dutch or English, with the exception of grant applications for research projects exceeding €10.000,-. These applications must be written in English, due to the potential peer-review procedure that these applications are subject to.

Can I use abbreviations or technical terms in the application?

Please avoid the use of technical abbreviations and/or technical terms, unless adequately explained.

How many times can I apply?

The Erasmus Trustfonds, in principle, provides support to an individual or association no more than once every 12 months. Applications by individuals or associations who have been awarded financial support over the past 12 months, therefore, are not eligible for support. Submitting more than one application within 12 months will thus result in a rejection. Applications for research- and education projects are an exception to this rule.

Are PhD candidates considered to be academic staff?

Yes, PhD candidates are considered to be members of the academic staff.
