Diamant Visitor's Grants

Diamant members holding a PhD can apply for a visitor's grant for researchers from abroad who hold a PhD and with whom they (will) cooperate scientifically.

The visit needs to include at least one activity (seminar talk, small workshop, ...), involving the visitor, that is of interest for the Diamant cluster as a whole, and that is publicly advertized. The visit is supposed to take place before 1 March 2020.

Each visitor's grant is worth a maximum of 2 kE. These 2 kE can be spent on any costs related to the visit, including travel costs, lodging costs, and costs to organize the Diamant activity.

Applications for a visitor's grant can be sent at any time to Robin de Jong. An application consists of 1 sheet A4, on which at least the following items are addressed: (1) name of the scientist to be invited; (2) expected scientific impact of the visit; (3) description of the relevance for the Diamant cluster; (4) description of the planned activity of interest to the Diamant cluster; (5) planned time frame of the visit; (6) concise allocation of the (maximum) 2 kE budget.

Diamant strives to make a decision on your application within four weeks after submission of your proposal.

The total Diamant budget for visitor's grants is 16 kE. When this budget is expired this will be notified on the present webpage. Before applying, please consult this webpage for the latest information and updates regarding the application formalities.

Diamant PhD Travel Grants

PhD students with at least one supervisor within the Diamant cluster can apply for a travel grant.

The travel grant is aimed at actual scientific cooperation. More precisely, the proposed visit should be in the form of a working visit, aimed at actual scientific collaboration and/or consultation with a scientist, who holds a PhD, abroad. Visits to conferences or workshops are excluded from the Diamant PhD travel grants. The travel is supposed to take place before 1 March 2020.

Each PhD travel grant is worth a maximum of 2 kE. These 2 kE can be spent on any costs related to the visit abroad, including travel costs and lodging costs.

Applications for a PhD travel grant can be sent at any time to Robin de Jong. An application consists of 1 sheet A4, on which at least the following items are addressed: (1) name of the scientist and/or institute to be visited; (2) expected scientific outcome of the visit; (3) planned time frame of the visit; (4) concise allocation of the (maximum) 2 kE budget.

In addition, your application needs to include a signed statement by at least one supervisor within the Diamant cluster indicating that the travel is relevant for your research.

Diamant strives to make a decision on your application within four weeks after submission of your proposal.

The total Diamant budget for PhD travel grants is 25 kE. When this budget is expired this will be notified on the present webpage. Before applying, please consult this webpage for the latest information and updates regarding the application formalities.
