The Amsterdam UMC Women in Science Fund offers grants to young female scientists for international work visits in order to accelerate their career development. Female researchers that hold a PhD degree and are employed by VUmc, AMC or AMR in a temporary position can apply. Applications for a maximum of € 14.000 can be submitted on a continuous basis.
The NWO Aspasia program provides grants to help female scientists progress to higher levels on the career ladder. Aspasia is linked to the Vidi and Vici competitions of the NWO Talent Scheme. The grant is intended to encourage the promotion of female Vidi and Vici grant candidates to senior roles. Additionally, part of the Aspasia grant had to be spend on broad diversity measures to support other women within the organization in their career development.
Women researchers and researchers who (also) identify as such that hold a PhD degree and are employed by VUmc, AMC or AMR in a temporary position can apply.
What to apply for
The fund offers the possibility to apply for a travel grant for both short and long - maximum 12 months - work visits to international research institutes and hospitals. An allowance may be requested for international travel costs and/or local accommodation costs:
- The allowance for the international travel costs is based on the costs of an economy class flight return ticket and is limited to 2000 euros.
- The allowance for accommodation costs is limited to 500 euros per week with a maximum of 1000 euros per month.
When to apply
Applications for work visits can be submitted on a continuous basis or until the available budget has been used up.
The Amsterdam UMC Women in Science Fund committee, consisting of Aspasia laureates, will evaluate the applications for travel grants based on the indicated criteria at a first-come first-serve basis. Applications will be evaluated throughout the year.
