Grant Application and Grant Writing by Maartje de Snoo

Your head can be full of exciting and innovative research ideas, but without funding it might be difficult to start scaling your thoughts up to practice. Or maybe you’re just trying to find a payed extension for your PhD? What grants can you apply for, and how should you approach the writing of such an application?

Maartje de Snoo, from the VU grants desk, hosted this workshop to explain the ins and outs of applying for grants, for both PhD-candidates and postdocs. In this workshop, she explained which grants you can apply for, how an application procedure looks like and tips to structure your application manuscript to convince the comittee.
