Research funding applications

Grants for training activities (for master’s and doctoral students)

Description and objective

Travel grants for master’s and doctoral students enrolled in the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science to attend conferences or schools or for short stays at research centres. The activity must be approved by the tutor in the case of master's students or by the thesis supervisor in the case of doctoral students. The purpose of these grants is to help master's and doctoral students complement their training by attending and participating in conferences, advanced courses in their area of specialization or other scientific activities.

Priority will be given to pre-doctoral researchers who do not have access to other sources of funding. The grants are a maximum of €500 for travel within Europe and €1000 for travel outside Europe. Each student can apply for a maximum of €1000 per year. The applicant is expected to apply at least one month before the activity takes place. As a general rule, applications for activities that have already taken place will not be considered.


Applications will be evaluated by the chairs of the Research and Doctoral Committee and of the Doctoral Academic Committee in accordance with criteria these committees establish. Application results will be announced within a period of approximately 15 working days.
