As a PhD student at the University of Amsterdam, you are eligible to receive a one-off grant to fund a trip abroad. These grants exist thanks to the support of Amsterdam University Fund donors.
The trip must be related to or contribute to your PhD research. The grant can be used for different purposes such as attending a conference or doing research in another country.
The travel grants are not intended to cover all your costs; rather, they are a supplementary contribution. The level of the grant depends on the destination and length of stay. The following amounts apply.
|Duration and destination||< 3 months||> 3 months|
|Europe||€ 450||€ 550|
|Outside Europe||€ 700||€ 900|
The Amsterdam University Fund will pay the travel grant once you have submitted a report of your trip. We would appreciate it if you could provide a few digital photos.
Strict deadlines apply to applications for travel grants. Applications must be received by the deadline even if you're not certain whether the trip will go ahead.
Applications will only be considered if they include all of the required information. Please ensure your application form is fully completed and includes all the required attachments. Please send these attachments as PDF.

We will not be able to reimburse you for the use of any photos.
You should submit your report, with your photos as separate jpg files, within three weeks of your return home, and include your name, address and phone number. Please send them to: subsidieaanvragen-AUF@uva.nl
