Call for Applications: Utrecht Network Young Researcher’s Grant for the Academic Year 2023/24

Utrecht Network Young Researchers Grant

The Utrecht Network Young Researchers Grant is designed to promote and further enhance the Network’s support to students and staff as well as broaden mobility between the Network’s institutions.

Within the framework of the Young Researchers Grant up to 20 scholarships of €1,000 each will be offered to students, who might not be eligible for other scholarship programmes such as ERASMUS+ (e.g. length of stay is under 2 months).

The Utrecht Network Young Researchers Grant is for self-organised mobility at one of the Utrecht Network partner universities. Please check the members section for an overview of all member institutions.

Please note that the host institution cannot be in the same country as the Institution you are enrolled in.

The grant is limited to thesis research on masters or PhD level. Students are allowed to take courses as well. However priority will be given to ‘research-only’ PhD students.

Since the study/research period including the application is self-organised, students are expected to check possible research areas of the university they want to apply to and to find the supervisor by themselves.


  • Masters/PhD level
  • Minimum length of stay 4 weeks (mobility is not restricted to semesters, but may also take place during the holidays)
  • Students, who are eligible for an ERASMUS grant, cannot apply for this grant

Application documents:

  • Application Form
  • Letter of Recommendation by supervisor/programme coordinator
  • Letter of Acceptance (by an academic supervisor/coordinator at the host institution)
