Training Grants for Individuals – Spring 2019

Are you preparing a Rubicon, Veni or Marie Curie proposal in 2019? Do you want to know how to best structure your proposal? Could you use some guidance in how to frame your proposal? Do you want to know how funding proposals are reviewed? Then register for the Spring 2019 training ‘Grants for Individuals’!

Grants for Individuals is for young researchers, i.e. you are in the last year of your PhD research till up to three years after completion of your PhD degree. The aim of the training is to prepare you for competitive individual grant schemes (e.g. Marie Curie, Rubicon, Veni and other (less known) schemes which address this audience). Upcoming training sessions run from February till May.
The training is centered around actual research proposals: you enter the training with your own draft proposal, and finish with a version which is ready to submit. During the training you will review other proposals, rewrite your own draft several times, present your proposal and refine their presentation.

The training consists of a general information sessions, three writing skills sessions and three presentation skills sessions. Based on these meetings, you will keep on working on the proposal and presentation. You are expected to regularly upload a rewritten version of your proposal.

To be able to participate you need:

  • To be preparing a grant proposal which you aim to submit to an individual grant funding scheme, e.g. Marie Curie fellowship grant, Rubicon grant and the Veni (pre-proposal) grant (please note all individual grant schemes are allowed, so not only these mainstream ones) in the near future.
  • To have full support from your Principal Investigator/department chair /supervisor. The aim of this is to ensure you meet the requirement of the funding scheme and receives sufficient time to complete the training. The work involved in the training is quite intensive, so participation only makes sense if you have sufficient time for participation.

The group of participants will be divided into 2 to 4 subgroups, depending on the number of participants. Due to the limited number of participants, a selection process will take place. Your funding advisor can register potential participants for the selection process. Candidates will be invited for a selection interview that will take place between 21-24 January 2019.

Participation requires commitment and effort of you (and your Principal Investigator/department chair /supervisor). Due to experiences in the past and the expenses we have for organising the training, a deposit of €1000,- is requested. This will have to be paid by the department/supervisor.

When you have shown sufficient participation (handed in a full proposal by the first writing skills session mid-March, present during both information sessions, missed no more than other 1 meeting and has shown active participation, as evidenced by e.g. timely submission of homework), the deposit will be refunded after the training.
