Submit the application form in PDF format to along with the CVs of the two main applicants by 17.00 on 30 September.

To better understand the complex problems of today and tomorrow, we need perspectives and findings from different disciplines working together. Meaningful scientific and methodological innovation requires making the boundaries between disciplines more porous and looking at the numerous societal problems that we face more holistically. The Maastricht Young Academy hopes to stimulate this interdisciplinary collaboration through this grant. While the amount offered by the grant may not help you change the world on its own, it is seed money for you to start something societally relevant and full of potential.

Here are some factors for the applicants to consider:

  • The application is for young academics (defined as those who have obtained their PhD within the last eight years) working at UM.
  • The application must have academic staff members actively involved from at least two different faculties as the main candidates. Non-UM members and senior academics (those who have obtained their PhD more than eight years ago) may be listed as “Other Project Members in Section 3″.
  • The grant can be used to free capacity of the staff members involved, to cover out-of-pocket costs, and for other overhead costs.
  • After the deadline, MYA will conduct an eligibility check and we may ask you to submit additional documents and/or revise/edit the application for resubmission.
  • The Selection Committee for this application will consist of MYA members on the Interdisciplinarity subcommittee and other MYA members that will represent all of the UM faculties.
  • This written application will be the first part of the assessment, which will be followed by an interview for those invited to the second and final round.
  • The grant winner will be requested to present their outcomes at the annual MYA Day, other MYA related activities and/or through other means of social outreach.
  • Your written application will be assessed by Selection Committee based on the responses you provide to the questions in this application.
