Deel deze pagina

Are you a postdoctoral researcher at one of the six Dutch universities represented in the board of the KNIR and do you need to conduct research in Rome? Then you are eligible for a KNIR scholarship.
The scholarship consists of
Free lodging at the KNIR for a minimum of 4 and maximum of 10 weeks.
Reimbursement of travel and additional costs should be provided by your home institution or the research project in which you participate.

Application requirements
1. You are an affiliated postdoctoral research at one of the following Dutch universities: University of Groningen, Leiden University, University of Amsterdam, Utrecht University, VU University Amsterdam and Radboud University Nijmegen
2. You can demonstrate that a stay at the KNIR will benefit your research

If you are not affiliated with one of the six Dutch universities associated with the Institute, you cannot apply for a KNIR scholarship, but you can send in a request for paid accommodation at the Institute.

How to apply?
The deadlines for applications are 15 May (for the 1st semester) and 15 November (for the 2nd semester). You can apply by completing the application form (below). You will be asked to provide the following information / upload the following documents:

  • a title and short description of your research (max. 450 characters)
  • a letter of motivation (max 1 A4)
  • a recent CV (max 2 A4)
  • a detailed description of your research project, including a working schedule for your research stay in Rome, and specification of the (re)sources you plan to consult (max 4 A4)
  • a photo, which we will use only on our website(s) and social communication channels if you have been granted this scholarship.

When selecting applicants, we look at your motivation, the benefit of a stay at the KNIR for your research, the quality of your research proposal, your CV, and your contribution to the KNIR academic community.

The results of the selection process will follow no later than one month after the deadline. If your scholarship is granted, we will plan your research stay within the semester you have applied for. In the application form you have the possibility to indicate periods during which a stay is impossible. You can also indicate preferences (e.g. the beginning or the end of the semester). We will reckon with these preferences as much as possible.

After receiving a confirmation of your KNIR scholarship you are asked to accept the scholarship and confirm the period of your research stay within one week.
