Grants may be available for projects that support academic practice, academic/cultural heritage, and UvA student life.
Grants may be available for projects that support academic practice, academic/cultural heritage, and UvA student life.
The grant is a supplementary contribution and is aimed at projects that cannot be financed through ordinary University funding sources. The level of the grant is determined on a case by case basis.
If the grant is awarded, the Amsterdam University Fund will pay the grant ahead of the start of the project. Upon return you are required to submit a travel report (see report guidelines) and your final financial accounts for the project. Travel reports can be used in our communications with donors to inform them about the expenditures of the funds.
Production expenses for publications such as magazines, doctoral theses, academic publications and commemorative publications do not qualify for a grant. We also will not accept applications for grants to fund projects that may be funded in other ways (such as through grants or sponsorship already awarded).
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 would appreciate it if you could supply a few digital photos. Ideally these would be photos of the group, or part of it, taking part in an activity, excursion or visit. Please provide the photos as high-resolution jpg files (larger than 1MB in size). We will always ask you for permission first if we plan to use one of your photos for our website, online newsletter or other publications. 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 and phone number. Please send them to: subsidieaanvragen-AUF@uva.nl.
